is an Australian installation artist, working mostly with ephemeral and site-specific works that evoke the passage of time and our place within it. Berkowitzís art is one of retrieval, of natural and found materials, of modernist art from the 60ís and 70ís as well as connections to her Jewish heritage. Often inspired by the landscape but troubled by its degradation, she recycles materials and themes into environmental narratives as an act of regeneration.
