EXHIBITION: Agustina Woodgate: Rugs
Exhibit runs through May 25, 2014
For the first time, Agustina Woodgate’s series Skin Rugs will be presented together in a solo exhibition. These are hand-sewn rugs made from recycled stuffed animal skins. The process starts with the artist accumulating these cast aside personal objects which had formerly been lovingly held by their previous owners. The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy’s owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages. More info
