Serene is fond of site-specific and conceptual installations, responding visually to the environment and experiences gathered. She works beyond any single medium; she adopts a process-driven and experimental approach, focuses on the qualities and possibilities of various media. Making use of quotidian objects: mirrors, lamps, plant, clock etc. she ask equivocal questions to respond to the environment and experiences of the moment. With a preoccupation with the abstract concept of time, her works often resulting as a minimalistic visual-poetry that aims to reveal the seemingly forgotten or intangible, stimulating re-inspection in life.
