"Elizabeth Ogilvie: Bodies of Water"
2005-12-16 until 0000-00-00
Dundee Contemporary Arts
Dundee, , UK

Natural patterns and rhythms, especially those of the sea, have been a source of inspiration for artist Elizabeth Ogilvie since she began exhibiting in the 1970s. In this, her most ambitious exhibition to date, Ogilvie has transformed DCA’s galleries into impressive environments with new works combining music, architecture, video, light and water. Elizabeth Ogilvie: Bodies of Water runs in Dundee Contemporary Arts' galleries 1 and 2 through February 12, 2006.

Her work relates not just to water as a material, but to global bodies of water and their cyclical movement across the earth. In recent years, she has been drawn to the developing geopolitics of water, at a time when it is increasingly discussed in the political sphere, as well as an interest in architecture and particularly the use of water as an intervention in buildings.

Ogilvie’s life and work are inextricably entwined with the sea, from her family’s origins on the island of St. Kilda, uninhabited since 1930, to her current home on the Firth of Forth, where she has lived since the early 1990s.

Elizabeth Ogilvie lives in Kinghorn, Fife. She has had solo exhibitions throughout the UK, including the Third Eye Centre, Glasgow (1980), the Serpentine Gallery, London (1981), Arnolfini, Bristol (1995). In 1999, she collaborated with poet Douglas Dunn on an installation ‘into the oceanic’ for Taigh Chearsabhagh, North Uist and was recipient of a Creative Scotland Award in 2001. She has been a lecturer at Edinburgh College of Art for many years.
