Sery C. (* 1959 in Linz, Austria) is an artist living and working in Germany. In his versatile work, the artist deals with the space and the position, or presentation of his artworks in it. In doing so, Sery C. makes use of various materials and ways of expression. An important group of works are the "Raumschnitte (Room Cuts)", a series of large, monochrome painted wooden panels that cut through rooms and cover walls. The work group "Ermalte Architekturfragmente (Painted Architectural Fragments)" develops out of those works. Here the artist uses a material that allows him to work directly on the architectural surface. The so-called industrial rubber is applied to a specially prepared underground and thus represents the first version of the artwork. Due to the material used, it is possible to detach it from the underground and to re-exhibit the paint skins in a new context.
In addition to the listed groups of works, the artist Sery C. manifests other artworks that have a clear spatial reference. However, due to the complexity of the individual group of works, the present interview refers mainly to the group of works "Painted Architectural Fragments".
