LAUREN BERKOWITZ creates ephemeral and site-specific installations that evoke the passage of time, loss, and renewal. Her work explores the poetic resonance of natural and man-made materials and their transformative qualities through light, volume, and space. Often inspired by the landscape but disquieted by its precarious state, she recycles narratives and residual matter as a process of environmental regeneration. Berkowitz’s work is held in major national and international collections. Between 2018 and 2019 she undertook residencies in New York, at the International Studio and Curatorial Program and Residency Unlimited, as well as Artspace, Sydney which led to the creation of her work featured in The National 2021, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney.
