Statement

Yuli Serfaty (1992, Israel) is a London based multimedia artist researching natural landscapes in relation to local and global politics. They use Speculative Fiction methodologies in order to World-build installations in textual, sonic, digital, and physical forms, specifically using a rhizome of field recordings, synthesised sounds, video, photography, writing, CGI, game engines and found objects. She often refers to this entanglement of media as the entanglement of living beings in any other environment.

Deeply affected by the biological world, Serfaty’s approach is an open-ended ecology in which each element exists in relation. They offer more-than-human webs where landscapes are protagonists, and ‘Man’, in its Western sense, is nothing but an onlooker. Serfaty is concerned with making space for alternative power structures, in which the marginalised, the unimportant and the overlooked take central stage.

In light of her own Israeli-colonial, Jewish-diasporic and British-immigrant heritage, Serfaty’s making integrates local and global-imperial perspectives; in recent years they have been giving focus to the Negev / Naqab desert in her home country of Israel, more specifically its politics of control, displacement, segregation and militarisation. They also run a multimedia reading group discussing queer Sci-Fi books, essays, talks, artworks, films, and sounds.
