Raju Rage

Artist

Raju Rage is an interdisciplinary artist who is proactive about using art, education and activism to forge creative survival. primarily using their non-conforming body as a vehicle of embodied knowledge; they aim to bridge the gap between dis/connected bodies, theory and practice, text and the body and aesthetics and the political substance. They work in performance, sculpture, soundscapes and moving image, focusing on techniques of resistance and utilising everyday objects and everyday life experiences in communicating narratives around gender, race and culture. They investigate history, memory and trauma, with an emphasis on colonial legacy, its continuation and impact on the body and contemporary diasporan identity. Raju Rage has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as ICA, Iniva, Autograph, 198 Contemporary, William Morris Gallery, Edinburgh Artists’ Moving Image Festival, Framer Framed, nGbK as well as being a published writer, radical educator and co-founder of London based arts collective ‘Collective Creativity’.
