Raju Rage, Under/Valued Energetic Economy

14 - 29 July 

Jupiter Woods is happy to host an exhibition by Raju Rage. 

Under/Valued Energetic Economy (a term inspired by Alexis Pauline Gumbs) is an installation and work in progress by Raju Rage which maps out the tangled ecology between "activism", "arts" and "academia". Presented on a trestle table top with objects and artifacts that references their interest in kitchen-table conversations and the knowledges that are produced by them, the work highlights informal strategies of organising, creativity and collectivity as valuable. It also explores alternative archiving of his/her/theirstories. 

Raju Rage is an interdisciplinary artist who is proactive about using art, education and activism to forge creative survival.
Based in London and working beyond, they explore the spaces and relationships between dis/connected bodies, theory and practice, text and the body and aesthetics and the political substance. Their current interests are around conditions, sustainability and care. They are a member of Collective Creativity arts collective and a creative educator and associate lecturer with an interest in radical pedagogy.

This project marks the beginning of our 2018 programme, that wishes to activate platforms of research and enquiry that interrogate the manifold souls of knowledge and education in their relation to subject formation and embodied learning. This journey will weave through moments of research, performative elements and occasions of collective gathering that aim at generating dialogue and alternative strategies of knowing and learning.
