Jakob Perrett (Here We Queer)

Australia

Due to the current impacts of Covid-19, this talk will be delivered in an online format. Please register your interest via Eventbrite and keep an eye on our social media for updates on how you can be involved!

Jakob Perrett is a Brisbane-based visual artist with a keen interest in illustration, photography, and post-production editing processes. His artwork illustrates the co-existence of people and the industrial environment with the natural world. The result is a fluid and ever-changing visual within his works and is an extension of his own exploration of identity and relationship with the world. Jakob's recent artwork has explored concepts of the post-human and how they relate to the 'othering' of queer bodies. The figures he portrays are often slightly disfigured, enhanced, and modified which, in combination with the attention they are given as artworks, are confront-ing and curious. This is in direct response to the underrepresentation of LGBTQI+ people within traditional media.
