Agustina Woodgate: More Heat Than Light

solo exhibition

Location: Stroom Den Haag, Hogewal 1-9, The Hague

When: 14 September - 15 December 2024
Open: Wednesday thru Sunday 12:00-17:00 hrs

More Heat Than Light is the first solo exhibition by the Argentinian artist Agustina Woodgate in the Netherlands. Starting in September, her sculptural and conceptual practice can be seen at Stroom Den Haag in a number of new and existing works. With More Heat Than Light, Woodgate focuses on quantum communication; the future technology that applies quantum physics to the field of communication. And the Netherlands plays a major role in that development. Last September, for example, the longest Internet connection (26 kilometers) using quantum technology was established between Delft and The Hague.
The exhibition at Stroom runs parallel to Woodgate's in-depth research with scientific partners, including QuTech / TU Delft and the University of Leiden. By translating the research into sculptural installations, Woodgate makes the digital infrastructure tangible and palpable.

An extensive public program is part of the exhibition. More information will follow soon.

Agustina Woodgate (1981, lives and works in Amsterdam and Buenos Aires) uses interventions, objects and installations to investigate how information technologies condition the social fabric and determine our access to resources. She focuses on the study of systems, the theories of values and the design logics operating in the built environment shaping society.
Woodgate has exhibited at the 2019 Whitney Biennial, New York; IX Berlin Biennial, IV Istanbul Design Biennial; Kulturpark, Berlin and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, among others.

The exhibition More Heat Than Light is realized thanks to Qutech / TU Delft, Mondriaan Fund, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and the City of The Hague.
