About this item

Elizabeth Ogilvie is a Scottish environmental artist who focuses on the psychological, physical and poetic dimensions of ice and water. Out of Ice was Ogilvie's gigantic immersive art piece, a site-specific work designed for the vast Ambika P3, a London gallery and former construction hall. Her work is deeply concerned with nature, global warming, the age of the Anthropocene and deep time, employing a fusion of art, architecture and science.

This publication explores one of the most significant artists of her generation in Scotland: it includes essays focusing on a critical interrogation of Ogilvie's work but also poetry, journal extracts and the artist's own writing. A series of stunning images will document Ogilvie's field research and experimental work, the Out of Ice installation process, and the artist's community engagement.

Ogilvie was the recipient of a Creative Scotland/National Lottery Award, as well as an Arts Council of England grant and a Saltire Award for Art in Architecture. She is the founder/director of Scottish-based cultural trust Lateral Lab, and she has exhibited in numerous galleries worldwide, including in Korea, Germany, Iceland and Japan.
