Kirstin Berg

Kirstin creates immersive environments by combining and manipulating unconventional materials such as fire ash, bush debris and hard rubbish into sculptural ephemera. Her work fuses painting, drawing and sculpture and revolves around her concern for environmental and human crisis and the redemption found in transforming our losses.

Kirstin has exhibited extensively in Australia and has lived, worked and exhibited internationally in Prague, Berlin and Barcelona. Her work is held in the National Gallery of Victoria, Artbank and Parliament House (Canberra), and in private collections within Australia, Europe and America.

She currently lives and works between Melbourne and Berlin.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
