Ser Serpas Biography

Ser Serpas (b. 1995, United States) Ser Serpas’ multifaceted practice embraces transience and indeterminacy. Through sculpture, poetry, performance and painting—Serpas emphasizes a productive precariousness, teasing meaning out of illegibility and creating sites to give thought to the momentary. Her installations demonstrate the simultaneously mesmerizing and fleeting notion of value, finding a productivity in objects that had otherwise seemed exhausted. Whether assembled from discarded detritus found on the street or from fabric gifted to Serpas by her friends, her reworked artworks and installations exist in and out of public—built from private moments and reassembled for an audience of strangers. At times these sculptures, poems and paintings seem on the brink of collapse or disintegration. Serpas constructively blurs the tension between stability and entropy. Likewise, she pits lucidness and incoherence against one another, frequently enclosing them in the same frame. Her works can be seen as monuments to impulse that are fixed just long enough to ingrain themselves in our memories.
