Raised in the early 90s, between Libya, UK and Poland, currently based in Barcelona, serahboo.m is a multifaceted artist, whose practice includes mainly photography and filmmaking, however, she also navigates through sound, textiles and any media that allows to get her vision across cultures.
The name "boom" is a result of the culturally diverse upbringing and the challenges that it entails. By choosing to be called by what originally was a stigma, she reappropriates its meaning in order to combat stereotypical representation and repressive ideologies.
Through the tools she carries as a creative and critical thinking mind, she aims to address difficult questions and reach beyond society's norms to create new narratives within surrounding communities of the diaspora and beyond.
In addition to the personal work, she founded a project called cantdefine.mealongside her friend Sinai Stengel, where as a creative duo they explore identity themes and new narratives in the diaspora and beyond with a focus on documentary photography and filmmaking. cantdefine.me IG: @cantdefine.me
