Agustina Woodgate

"Places and Objects are alive, we make them alive, they tell our stories and tales. Sewing poems in clothes in a way is giving the garments a voice. We are in relation -- with others, with things, with the world. This being-in-relation, is a way of perceiving, a mode of moving, a narrative of global truths designed by cultural fictions. Sewing poems in clothes is a way of bringing poetry to everyday life just by displacing it, by removing it from a paper to integrate it and fuse it with our lives. Sometimes little details are stronger when they are separated from where they are expected to be."
I have done a post about Agustina Woodgate's stuffed animal rugs in April but there is something much more successful about her poetry bombing. love it. I love when art can be found in unsuspecting places in public.
