Through digital media, painting and video, combined with found objects, the artist explores the relationships between science and global transformations derived from the scientific discoveries particularly in the fields of astronomy and optics. Her research-based projects result in visual forms that function both as virtual and material installations. Brigita’s solo exhibitions include “The moon is wet and wild” at the City Museum in Ulcinj (2019), Magical Waters in gallery Alexander, Rose (2018), Softness of Being in Atelier Dado, Cetinje (2017), Intrigue in Center gallery, Podgorica (2015), and Sometimes, something… in Sue Ryder gallery, Herceg Novi (2012). Her works were featured in several group exhibitions in Montenegro and Croatia including the National Museum of Montenegro in Cetinje, Petrović Njegoš Foundation, and Center for Contemporary Art in Podgorica.
