Seren Metcalfe (b.1997) is a Yorkshire-born Artist, Writer and Curator based in London.


Her practice spans Performance, Moving Image, Installation, Sculpture, and Text. She attempts to create honest imagery that blurs the lines between fictional narratives and the poetic reality of being human. Combining themes of Time, Television, and Technology to question societal structures and the theatrics of everyday existence. Commonly using the body as a tool to question these ideologies with inspiration from Yorkshire Landscapes, Urban architecture, and Pop Culture.

Seren is the founder and director of The Working Class Creatives Database. She is against the inaccessible language of academia and strives for Art to be for everyone, not just those who can afford it

Currently looking to collaborate with Dance Artists, Writers, Musicians and Engineers interested in Robotics.
