Lauren Berkowitz

Lauren Berkowitz is an Australian installation artist who creates mostly ephemeral and site-specific works. She describes her art as one of retrieval, and works with natural and found materials. She seeks inspiration from modernist art of the 1960s and 1970s as well as from 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.

Lauren Berkowitz has exhibited across commercial and institutional spaces within Australia and internationally including National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne; and Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney.

In her practice, Kasalicky makes use of metal furniture, gutters, tiles, and decorative house plants, that appear as fragments in enigmatic contexts.

Luisa Kasalicky has exhibited work at LENTOS Kunstmuseum, Linz; Bawag Contemporary, Vienna; and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna.
