Berger originally trained in fashion and has explored issues of protection and care – as they might refer to clothing, housing, public space and law – in her work as an artist. 

She creates work that connects individual perception and intimate use with questions of material reality as part of socio-economic circulation and consumption. Pertaining to body as much as to space, her objects traverse sites and systems of value and encompass elements of material transience such as malleability or modularity.
