Tereza Tacic is a non-binary neurodivergent interdisciplinary artist based in the unceded homelands of the xʷməθkʷə ̓yəm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱ wú7mesh (Squamish) and sə̓lilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-waututh) Nations.
Tacic’s artistic practice aims to challenge the traditional concept that there is only one particular way doing, thinking or making something. Embracing their ADHD diagnosis, they allow themselves to process information naturally with the goal of demonstrating to the viewer how neurodivergent brains navigate the world. Tacic’s process of making art is influenced by their consideration of the ways that creating art can help resolve internalized conflicts, being aware of their responsibility as an artist to represent their experience genuinely and openly. Thus, the process of how Tacic creates art is representative of how they aim to move earnestly and thoughtfully throughout their role of an artist in today’s society.
