    Bio

    Woodgate aims to create art that fosters exchanges between people rather than encounters between a viewer and object. Through these exchanges, meaning is elaborated collectively, rather than in the space of individual consumption.

     

    Often responding to a place or situation, she makes objects, site-specific, gallery and context-based installations, films, publications and collaborative event-based projects that focus on the interplay between human beings and their surrounding environment at both macro and micro levels. Site specificity is usually the point of departure for her creative process, involving research into a place and everyday relations. Her works explore and engage with multilayered surfaces and workings of the built environment and navigates the intangible and transient layers of physical and psychological space.

     

    Woodgate’s works explore the physical, emotional and cultural relationships we have with our surroundings by examining how as individuals, we may aspire, adapt, observe, connect, seek and find solutions for living.

     

    Woodgate graduated from the National University of Visual Arts, Argentina, in 2004 and has exhibited extensively in U.S and abroad. She has initiated collaborative projects and has been awarded artists residencies both nationally and internationally.

     

    Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, she is currently based in Miami, FL.
