Matthew Berka is a Melbourne based audiovisual artist/filmmaker who makes expanded narrative cinematic works. These works are made through durational processes of patient looking and listening. Often returning to his longstanding walking practice, Berka deploys walking as a generative tool prior to the use of cameras or microphones. His work sits (un)comfortably in and outside of gallery and cinema spaces. Berka’s work fuses and collapses audiovisual forms that breed from an intersection of place and psyche and over recent years he has made a number of long form/feature works as well as shorts and multi-channel installations utilising a variety of environments; from Icelandic landscapes to outer suburban interzones.
