Artist Biography: Soda_Jerk
Formed in Sydney in 2002, Soda_Jerk is a two-person art collective that approaches sampling as a form of rogue historiography. Working at the intersection of documentary and speculative fiction, their archival practice takes the form of films, video installations, cut-up texts and lecture performances.
Soda_Jerk have collaborated with Australian collectives The Avalanches and VNS Matrix, and held solo exhibitions at international institutions including Videotage, Hong Kong; the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington DC; Anthology Film Archives, New York and Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin.
Their multi-channel video installations have recently been exhibited at the Barbican Centre, London; Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff; Hartware Medien KunstVerein, Dortmund; Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens and Pioneer Works, New York.
