Australian super-animators Soda_Jerk present a selection of their recent work in the Edlis Neeson Theater. Harnessing a vast array of moving image media technologies and a wild abandon for appropriation, the collective destabilizes our favorite moments from the archive of popular movies, using their components to create entirely new narratives, speculative histories, and hilarious political critique.
About the Artists:
Formed in Sydney in 2002, Soda_Jerk is a two-person art collective 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. Based in New York since 2012, they have exhibited in galleries, cinemas, torrent sites, and institutions including the Barbican Centre, London; Videotage, Hong Kong; National Gallery of Art, Washington DC; Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund, Germany; the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne; and Anthology Film Archives, New York.
