    Curriculum Vitae

Yuli Serfaty – MA/MFA

Exposing the power dynamics between landscape and politics, by telling a landscape that is intrinsically political, is the core motivation of my practice. I use fictional, experienced and documented elements to narrate semi-realistic, research-based worlds, in which landscape and subject boundaries are merged, reversed, or otherwise interwoven.

My work is inherently immersive, and often includes sonic, digital, and physical elements. My world-actors specifically comprise of field recordings, synthesised sounds, video, photography, writing, CGI, video game engines and found objects. I often refer to this entanglement of media as the entanglement of living beings in any other ecosystem. Storytelling is paramount in my work. From ancient mythology to contemporary politics, stories shape how we see our worlds; by telling Other stories, I suggest both criticism of real landscapes and an imagining of Other hierarchies.

My practice is concerned with making space for alternative power structures, in which the marginalised, the unimportant and the overlooked take central stage.
