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. Taking the form of video installations, cut-up texts and lecture performances, their archival practice merges the zones of research, documentary and speculative fiction. Current fields of research include Afrofuturism, Australian gothic, cinematic hauntology and The Nova Trilogy.
Soda_Jerk is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW and the Helen Lempriere Bequest, managed by Perpetual.
