When artwork becomes about relationship building, when is it appropriate to end that relationship or have it change?
Jade Thacker is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. By adopting an anti- authoritarian openness, and at times humor, Thacker’s work encourages interaction by initiating a venue to explore microcosmic situations for larger social, pedestrian, and aesthetic conditions. Her projects illicit participation in an effort to realize a community of otherwise unrevealed desires, reactions, and secrets. By inducing productive e ngagement, alliances are created to work against the isolation and dissidence of the day to day, every man for himself, lifestyle. Through often deceptively simple engagements that bring people into playful contact with one another Thacker wants her work to propel you to action, to reclaim one’s freedoms, pleasure, and leadership.
