Tony Jacob (b. 1995, Kerala, India) works across textile, text, print, installation and more recently with performance and photography. His practice explores the discourse of the body and its relationship with social control. By using his own body that embodies the queer and the postcolonial, he examines the gendered and racialised subjectivity of the body in its navigation of public and private spaces.
He holds a Bachelor of Design degree in Textile Design from the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Chennai. Previously, he worked with textile studios, NGOs and craftspeople in various parts of India as well as a writer in publication and academia.
