Endlessly Falling

Endlessly Falling is the second installation in a new series of landscapes. The sceneries construct surreal exteriors in interior spaces, probing the relation between everyday objects and the grand narratives that condition our unnatural relationship to the natural world.

A hanging chandelier holds thousands of clear strands of water falling over the grounds. Beneath the only functional light fixture, something emerges and grows. In Endlessly Falling, we are home; we must be, except as usual, the home is strange. In fact, it is this homey that is strange, that comfort of home doesn’t quite settle. Because of this, incongruities become meaning-makers. Instead of order emerging from chaos, chaos emerges from the order. We follow the displacement line again and again, in an effort to make sense of the sensory, in an effort to recompose the many directions the story leads.

Through this new series of works, Agustina probes environments as interior escapes and exterior escapades. She is always unfolding a narrative process that also tells the larger story of her own oeuvre. She adventures another tale in our midst, as each new piece patterns the fictions we all share.

Agustina Woodgate

Following her graduation from the National University Institute of Art (IUNA, Buenos Aires) in 2004, Woodgate moved to Miami, where she developed an artistic practice that combines disciplines as far removed from each other as textile art and street performance. Her individual projects include Organic (2005, Liquid Blue Gallery, Miami), Letting Down (2008, Spinello Gallery, Miami), Endlessly Falling (2009, Dimensions Variable, Miami), Growing Up (2010, Miami-Dade Public Library, Miami), If These Walls Could Talk (2011, Spinello Projects, Miami), New Landscapes (2012, Art Basel Miami Beach, Miami), and Rugs (2014, Arts and Culture Center of Hollywood, Florida).
