Soda_Jerk will take on the IMPIC following the success of their July 2016 work The Was, which they created in collaboration with The Avalanches.
Formed in Sydney in 2002, Soda_Jerk is a two-person art collective that approaches sampling as an alternate form of history-making.
Soda_Jerk expressed excitement in recieving the commission, and determination to use it for further work of a high calibre.
“It’s a staggering honour to be selected, our collective head is spinning. But we are also ready to get to work. To be braver, graver, more ambitious, technically dexterous and politically urgent with this project.”
