Locust Projects is pleased to announce its second annual Billboard Project. Argentinean-born, Miami-based artist Agustina Woodgate, has been selected to present site-specific artwork for billboards and bus shelters surrounding Miami’s Design District and Miami Beach in November and December 2011.
Conceived specifically for Locust Projects, 11:11 is the latest from a series of displaced landscapes that create surreal inversions of exterior and interior spaces.
Woodgate creates art that fosters interpersonal dialogue, from which meaning collectively emerges. Through a broad range of disciplines – including sculpture, installation, performance and collaboration – the artist’s work focuses on the relationship between individuals and their environment, and explores layers of physical and psychological space.
