Heloise Bergman is a lens based artist from New Zealand.
‘Rokit Girl was inspired by infatuation with the Dutch Masters. Vermeer’s female subjects were portrayed occupied by houshold errands, often with an intensity that elevates the everyday to something more profound. Almost a decisive moment. Over three hundred years later, Rokit Girl works in Brick Lane and I capture her between customers. She embodies an ephemeral look, gender fluid, time fluid; but when she meets my eyes across the shop, it feels like another decisive moment.’ (Heloise Bergman)
