Soda_Jerk is an Australian two-person art collective that works with found material to trouble existing formulations of cultural history. By strategically reimagining historical trajectories, the artists are concerned with producing counter-mythologies of the past that open new possibilities for the present.
Lexy Ho-Tai is an interdisciplinary artist who is interested in the intersection between art making and making the world a better place. She explores social themes through work that is humorous, playful, and interactive. Highly inspired by the minds of children, she takes play very seriously. She is passionate about arts and accessibility, and has most recently been exploring public and participatory art. She is currently developing an interactive, soft-sculpture, creature-filled world, KOOKERVILLE, which is where your inner child goes to when it has been lost.
Aside from making, Lexy also loves art teaching and programming. She conceptualized and co-created Accessible Art, a free adaptive art program for disabled youth in the Bronx. She has taught art and sewing at various schools, camps, and privately. Helping youth express and manifest their creative ideas gives her so much joy!
Lexy has been an artist-in-resident at the Watermill Center and a Van Lier Fellow at the MAD Museum. She has a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons School for Design. She is based in New York City, though she spends most of her time up in the clouds…
