Alice (Language) Practice 34
30 x 100 cm
Ink and watercolour on paper
This is a unique work, hand-signed by the artist on the back of the papers.
Ser Serpas’ multifaceted practice embraces transience and indeterminacy. Through sculpture, poetry, performance and painting – Serpas emphasises a productive precariousness, teasing meaning out of illegibility and creating sites to give thought to the momentary. Her installations demonstrate the simultaneously mesmerising 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 re- worked artworks and installations exist in and out of public – built from private moments and re- assembled for an audience of strangers.
