Serena Korda

Shortlisted in 2014 for Sculpture

Serena Korda is interested in the various ways we think about ourselves in relation to the world. Working across performance, sound and sculpture, she considers how communion, tradition and ritual shape our lives. Her interest in ancient cosmology, new age philosophy and theories of quantum physics have drawn her to the imperceptible connections between nature, plants and animals – all bound together by vibration, sound and energy. Giving the rational mind and the imagination equal weight, she strikes a balance between the scientific and spiritual realms by creating multi sensory experiences that make invisible and inaudible forces palpable. Audiences are often encouraged to participate at some point in her process creating collective experiences that focus on the forgotten and overlooked.

Serena was the Norma Lipan/BALTIC Fellow in Ceramic sculpture at Newcastle University 2016- 2018, whilst recent solo shows include, Missing Time at BALTIC Gateshead 2018, Daughter’s of Necessity at The Hepworth Wakefield 2018, The Bell Tree Trust New Art and Bluecoat 2018 and Missing Time a performance for The High Line NYC 2018.
