Statement


Yuli Serfaty (Israel, 1992) is a London-based artist currently undertaking the MFA Fine Art Media programme at the Slade School of Art. Her work spans over media such as video, sound, sculpture, photography, CGI and AR, and is composed of elements such as game environments, digital models, animation, ceramic, steel, and found objects.

Serfaty explores landscapes as political agents. In light of her own colonial, Israeli background, and as an immigrant living in the United Kingdom, her approach integrates local and global-imperial perspectives. Examining our relation to landscapes as sites of both autonomy and abuse, Serfaty’s work highlights the interweaving of ecology, mythology, economy, technology and borders in a post-colonial world. By doing this she aims to highlight the dependence between habitat, wildlife and society, discussing an alternative to how Nature is currently perceived and treated. What happens to our power over nature if nature becomes autonomous, active, rather than passive? Will our human gaze upon nature be the same, if nature gazed back?
