Serena Korda

Serena Korda (b.1979, London) is a British, London based artist with a MA in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art (2010) and a BA in Fine Art from Middlesex University (2001). She works across sculpture, sound, performance and film. 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.
