The show is a collection of works developed by Radage spanning a decade. It includes immersive installation, video, sculpture, prints and millinery.


Growing out of Radage’s research into the relationships between neurodivergent experience and Shamanic practice, the installtion MOTHER BENT uses a neurodivergent lens to create moments of quiet and cacophony, focus and wholeness, offering different ways of seeing and sensing. It also draws on the ancient Shamanic practice of journeying, in which the subject is transported to other worlds in an altered form of consciousness. This visionary state can involve working with nonhuman allies – animals, plants and spirits – to receive their teachings and medicine. Radage uses the practice of journeying to remember ancient knowledges in an attempt to find alternate ways of being in a neurotypical society.

The video work WORM DANCE is a kinaesthetic interspecies communication. Through creating vibrations through treading rapidly and bare earth and singing, worms surface from underground. ‘WORM DANCE' was made with support of Arts Council England and Shape Arts.

The collection of works Underneath Infinity incorporate film, sound, aluminium print and silicone to seek a radical communication found in the commonplace. The work intuits, ingests and forces forth the more than human. These pieces touch on queer ecology, interspecies communication, joy and vibrations that call for a human rewilding within the ecosystems we inhabit.

On display is also the remnants of the live performance 'Quake' that was performed by Radage on the opening event. 'Quake' was a piece developed over lockdown whioch explores shaking medicine, physical endurance and sonic actions. The hat on diaplay was designed by Radage and realised by milliner Rosanna Gould.
