Raju Rage is an interdisciplinary artist who uses art and activism to forge creative survival. They are interested in the role of art in social change, transformative healing justice and in collectively. They are focused on knowledge and creative production both inside but mostly outside of academia and institutions, within pro/active creative and activist communities. Their work interrogates the ways in which contemporary diasporan identities are constructed and read/misread through history and memory, in/visibility and the effect of politics, space, symbolism, stereotypes, ethnic codes, ideology and gazes on the body. They use sculpture, collage and ritual mediums and work in live art, performance and moving image, focusing on de-con-structure techniques of resistance such as interruption, confusion, and disturbance. They primarily use their non-conforming body as a vehicle of assemblage and embodiment.
