      "I am however ultimately intrigued by the impact of memory and social history. My intention is to create subtle paradoxes which suggest, rather than state, social commentaries and private narratives."

    Aggenbach works in a variety of media from print making and painting to sculpture. As Kim Gurney states “she often explores the impact of the past and how it is recalled and interpreted, sometimes using nostalgia as a trigger”. Her recent exhibition, ‘Sub Rosa’, investigates translucent film as a medium for recounting half-truths by referencing tampered photographic film, intimate portraiture and the ever-eluding grasp of sensation

    Aggenbach is, as Michael Smith states, "proving to be an important voice in South African contemporary art, her intelligent approach and compelling material sensibility combining to forge a formidable visual language”.
