Australia Council for the Arts Residency
Brigita Ozolins is an artist and academic of Latvian heritage who lives and works in Hobart Tasmania. Her practice examines the links between language, history, bureaucracy, and identity and stems from her passion for books, words, and libraries. She uses a wide range of materials to convey her ideas, including books, handwriting, digital images, video, furniture, sign-writer's vinyl, and mirrors. Her work usually takes the form of installation, is often text-based and site-specific, and increasingly involves working with other experts such as architects, builders, engineers, and video and sound artists.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Oracle, Bett Gallery, Hobart, Tasmania (2020); Grimstone & Savery: Australia’s first novelists, Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts Gallery, Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office, LINC Tasmania, (2012); The Reading Room, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart, Tasmania (2011); and Celojums/The Journey, National Library of Latvia, Riga, Latvia (2010).
