For the first time, Argentinian artist Agustina Woodgate’s Rug Collection is being presented together in a solo exhibition at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. Woodgate’s rug No Rain, No Rainbows has previously featured in COVER magazine and there is now an entire collection of the hand-sewn rugs made from the pelts of stuffed toy animals.

Woodgate’s website explains: “The process starts with the departure of the loving life objects have when they are in the hands of their owners.The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy’s owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages. In Eastern Cultures, the oriental rug centralizes the living space in pattern, operating beyond utility to depict the spiritual and mental world in woven form. Woodgate is particularly drawn to the specific meanings in the arrangement of rug designs, and how different histories of the rug represent stories of the past and ways of tracing archetypes in physical and material forms.”

The show at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood closes on 28 May 2014.
