Sophie Chapman and Kerri Jefferis

Sophie Chapman and Kerri Jefferis

Kerri & Sophie work exclusively through collaboration. Their practice is emergent, experimental and interdisciplinary, creating conditions for space occupation using action and performance.

Feminist, dadaesque punks – they reject the dominant logic of neoliberal, colonial and capitalist ideologies. Their practice advocates for others; is unbounded, queer and unfinished. Approaching the world from within rather than claiming an elevated position (Rathna Ramanathan). Solidarities, poetics, play and anger…..mostly radical politics through soft embraces. Their work often adopts known forms (the survey, the quiz, the conference) to court the social imaginary. Inviting others in, performing public gestures and demonstrating new structures.
