SERAFINE1936, from darkness into darkness 2021

A new installation from London-based artist, dancer and choreographer SERAFINE1369

SERAFINE1369's practice is always relational, moving across spaces, contexts, scales, roles and collaborations. Their work often involves sculpture, text, electronic music, video, internal narratives, texture and trance states to build atmospheric landscapes. Choreographies become a type of stage, dreamscape or battleground through the live unfolding of tensions between things that create meaning.

Moving through mythological archetypes of monstrous creatures, from darkness into darkness considers what it means to be or feel haunted, host to multiple entities – existing in the tensions between coming together and coming apart.

Art Now is a series of free exhibitions showcasing emerging talent and highlighting new developments in British art.
