Teddy bear rugs

Agustina Woodgate takes the popular comfort toy of children and vessels of childhood nostalgia-the stuffed teddy bear-and skins them to make these hand sewn rugs! She rationalizes her crime:

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.

Her sculptures made out of human hair are also worth a view.
