Común y corriente


19.03.2016 If the movement of waters naturally follows the force of gravity, what kinds of economic policies rule the forces that modify their courses? How do they permeate the control of public spaces, of private spaces and more so, our body? Agustina Woodgate sets up public drinking fountains and gives away water to visitors. She invites them to bend their bodies, curiously reach to each other and instinctively catch water shoots with their mouths as an act of redistribution. Obsessed with the infrastructure as the visible embodiment of the forces that manage natural resources, with the perishability of economic development models and the ill-timed conversation between private and public policies, the artist makes local cases her own and she amplifies them to a global scale: the space we inhabit, be it physical or social, is a field full of tensions where Man is the common denominator that alters all the cells in the world.
