ARTIST STATEMENT
Suzanne Berkers creates objects and installations in which light, movement and space play an important role. She is fascinated by the elusive, transient and volatile nature of things.
The pieces do not have a fixed shape but may change or move, fold in or out, disappear and reappear. They are created in a search for the razor-thin intersection between two moments. She calls this intersection the ‘moment between’
