Brigitte Hart is an Australian sound artist working across performance and installation. Currently based in London, her practice explores relationships between voice, objects, histories and ecologies, often engaging text, environmental recordings, remnants and archives. She holds particular interest in exploring the art of small sounds, sounds that can be imagined, and the memory of sound.
Brigitte has developed installations, performances and workshops for Supernormal Festival, CRiSAP (Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice), Wysing Polyphonic x Somerset House Festival, Resonance FM, David Roberts Art Foundation, Tate Modern and Tate Britain. Her work with sound design has been presented at the Venice Biennale Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival in 2019. As a recipient of the Australian Council Art Start Award and the Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship, she has studied and performed at institutions such as Whitechapel Gallery, The Barbican and The London Contemporary Music Festival with David Toop and Chris Watson (BBC, David Attenborough.) Brigitte has also travelled to the Limpopo region of South Africa to undertake a residency with sound artist and ecologist Francisco Lopez and to Mongolia for sound documentation with multi-award winning film director Gabrielle Brady in 2019.
