UCA Canterbury is thrilled to be re-opening it's Herbert Read Gallery with a solo show from interdisciplinary artist Alicia Radage.


Radage’s practice manifests through performance, video, text and sound. Their current research looks at the intersection between Neurodiverse experience and Animist practice, looking to ways of communicating and being outside of neurotypical, late capitalism. Their core concern is remembering a fluency in spiritual connection to the more than human. Their practice is activated through intuiting forms of interspecies communication. 

UCA Canterbury is thrilled to be re-opening it's Herbert Read Gallery with a solo show from interdisciplinary artist Alicia Radage, featuring the following works:

MOTHER BENT is an audio and video installation that includes human and nonhuman elements, a collection of beings that are living alongside each other. The work questions the myth of human supremacy through an entanglement of uncanny visual forms and a sonic calling for interspecies communication. Replications and mutations of disembodied human flesh invite a blossoming of biodiversity. 
Growing out of Radage’s research into the relationships between neurodivergent experience and Shamanic practice, 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.  
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.  

UNDERNEATH INFINITY seeks 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.  

QUAKE is a live work in collaboration with milliner Rosanna Gould. The work is an outcome of a 6 month Arts Council funded project which explores the relationship between Neurodiverse experience and Shamanic practice
