Woodgate’s practice explores temporality, spatial politics, and the radical imagination. She create sculptural works, public interventions and social interactions that generate and imagine new landscapes. Observing the relations between space and politics in a world of reduced and privatized space, my projects often take place outside exhibitions halls. In projects like Hopscotch and Radioee.net, sidewalks and airwaves are seen as available and underused common spaces. Both the game and the radio find their origins in military functions yet their civic use has served and enhance public imagination globally and across generations. In projects like New Landscapes, Ballroom and Kulturpark, maps and abandoned sites become representations of an ever changing ecology and cartography that urges for a new assessment in the use of the natural resources. Her works convert surplus material and fantasies of outmoded objects and places into new possibilities of perception and action.
Woodgate graduated from Universidad Nacional de Artes, Argentina, in 2004. Since then she has exhibited extensively internationally and has received honors and awards including the Florida Prize, South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC); Art Matters Grant and the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant.
