Berga's text works explode notions of originality and authenticity…. Formed by pages torn from poetry anthologies that have been partially erased and physically obscured to reveal new poems authored by the artist, and characterised by their brevity, brutal wit and underlying melancholy, Berga’s works are refrains, dreams, songs, secrets told to us of failed relations and
broken arrangements…; they are mantras for the broken hearted or jaded among us

Kay Goodridge I just saw your work, and love the sculptural elements and using text. I use writing a lot in my art too - have just printed some writing I did re a friend who died, onto glass, the glass is black and the writing white. It is very beautiful. Hope you do well in Showdowns and selling
Best wishes Kay Goodridge
