Collin Serigne (b. 2001) is a Cajun-Houma multimedia artist and studying environmental scientist at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. He was born in Thibodaux, Louisiana to a family of oilfield workers and fishermen, and in the coastal marshes of Louisiana’s Gulf Coast, Serigne’s childhood was molded by life on the water. In an area gripped by the oil industry and environmental devastation, he bore witness to financial, ecological, and cultural hardship which made his future as unstable and uncertain as the land he lives on. Navigating the Fine Art world and academia as a first generation college student from a blue-collar family, Serigne has both the formal training as an artist and scientist, as well as first hand experience to create work which speaks to the principles governing environmental systems with deep familial and personal connection to place. Dealing with the threat of physically losing his community to the Gulf and the systematic erasure of culture, his recent work speaks to the loss of history and identity in the face of immense climatic change in his community and across the country.
