Brigita Ozolins: Oracle

August 28, 2020 - September 19, 2020

Brigita Ozolins, Revolution, 2020. Birch ply, Liming white stain and mirrored perspex, 103 x 80cm. Courtesy: the artist and Bett Gallery, Hobart.

These are some of the declarations that feature in this new body of text-based work by Brigita Ozolins created during the COVID-19 crisis. Backed by an ethereal, gently rhythmic soundtrack, the statements appear as patterned formations of text on brightly coloured fabric banners strung across the width of the gallery. They are also embedded into birch ply panels that shimmer with mirrored lettering and, on a far wall, come to life in a video projection that pulses with intensely coloured shapes and animated words.

This is Oracle, a response to the precarity and uncertainty of our current times. It offers guidance in the form of declarations from Friedrich Leibniz, George Orwell, the Bible and the I Ching, and reflects a desire to know what the future holds and where destiny will lead us.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
