Berenice is an ethnographer living in Shetland.
Making an ethnographic drawing can produce an artefact. Ethnography is broadly the study of culture in action, as understood by joining in. Berenice’s drawings are guided by the ethnographer’s sustained curiosity and her willingness to explore modes of naturalistic representation. Each cycle of drawings is located in a particular place.
Although her focus is on the present, her interest in narrative frequently extends the range of her projects to encompass things that are on the brink of losing their everyday currency or which only exist as memories and recollections. Her drawings become artefacts in a process which records the cultural significance of the ordinary.
