EN: agustine (ah-goos-teen) is a Chilean artist, writer, and bacterial community dedicated to the worlds of olfaction and sympoiesis. Their work uses text, olfaction, and ritual in an attempt to comprehend and commune with flows of ecological collapse as well to question the pervasive systems that produce them. Their work has been exhibited at Critical Distance in Canada, Galería Metropolitana in Chile, the Sharjah Art Foundation in the UAE, and the ICA @ VCU, among others. Their work has been published by the Institute of Queer Ecology, the Laboratory for Aesthetics and Ecology, DIS Magazine, and Genderfail Press. They currently live on Powhatan land (colonially known as Richmond, Virginia).
