Statement

Yuli Serfaty is a multimedia artist living and working in London, UK. She uses fictional narratives to critically highlight the interdependence between systems of power and the natural world. Driven by artistic worldbuilding as well as governmental terraforming, her work is research based and tends to exist in installations of sculpture, film, writing, new media and sound. She works to understand how we control and utilise ecological systems, how governmental bodies weaponise nature and “natural” elements to displace, annex, and control people and land, and especially, how they fail.

Field research, as well as academic writing and speculative fiction, inform Serfaty’s work. She conducts site visits to wild landscapes in which she records sounds, videos, photographs and 3D scans of geomorphology, animals, plants, infrastructure, trash, water, radio signals and overhead flight routes. These findings are complemented with academic readings on local natural resource management, tensions with indigenous communities, and effects of industry, military bases or test sites on landscape and society.
