Audra Jacot's work celebrates the empowerment of sexuality, emphasizing on being unapologetic and owning yourself and your desires. She works in multiple mediums, but her main loves are clay and neon. In confronting her own sexuality, she draws inspiration from her Filipina-Mormon upbringing.
Jacot received her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014, through the Art & Technology Studies program. Her work has recently been featured in OpenTV's Emmy-nominated Brown Girls and Full Spectrum Feature's Make Out Party. She was also named one of VAM Magazine's Top 20 Chicago Influencers of 2015.
In 2016, she juried Woman Made Gallery’s One in Herself show, which confronted the traditional and contemporary definitions of the word ‘Virgin.’ 2017 was very busy as it brought about 2 solo shows (including one in Chicago Reader's "Best New Art Gallery," amfm gallery), artwork and a titlecard for Netflix's Easy, work at Lollapalooza and the Soho House, curating an all-neon exhibition, and fashion spreads on DesignerShare's Fall Look Book and Circus Magazine's 2nd issue.
Currently living in Chicago, she continues to show work and curate at both traditional and DIY gallery spaces. She is a board member of The Condo Association art collective and Chicago's historic Woman Made Gallery. You can catch her work this summer in the web series Kappa Force, as well as Shea Couleé's latest music video, Crème Brûlée.
