Liverpool Biennial is delighted to announce the release of a Limited Edition silkscreen print by Rudy Loewe. This work serves as a companion print to their outdoor installation, ‘The Reckoning’, which was produced for ‘Liverpool Biennial 2023, uMoya: The Sacred Return of Lost Things’, and exhibited at Liverpool ONE.
‘The Reckoning’ depicts Moko Jumbie (a stilt walker) and other Carnival mas players (participants who wear masquerade costumes and march in the parade) coming to the aid of the people at a moment of Black Power revolution in Trinidad and Tobago.
Loewe aims to visualise Black histories, Caribbean folklore and social politics through their work, particularly focusing on a critique of Britain’s role in suppressing Black Power organising in the English-speaking Caribbean during the 1960s and 70s. ‘The Reckoning’ acts as a portal to imagine and learn about these histories; it is a manifestation of power, but not the kind that oppresses.
Recent exhibitions include Unattributable Briefs: Act Two, Orleans House Gallery (2023); Unattributable Briefs: Act One, Staffordshire St (2022); New Contemporaries, Humber Street Gallery & South London Gallery (2022); NAE Open 22, New Art Exchange (2022); and The Summer Exhibition, Royal Academy (2021).
Loewe graduated in 2018 with an MFA from Konstfack, receiving the Rektor Stavenowska award for academic excellence. In 2021 Loewe was Artist In Residence at the Serpentine alongside their collaborator, Jacob V Joyce. Loewe began a Techne funded practice-based PhD at the University of the Arts London in 2021, examining Britain’s role in suppressing Black Power movements in the English-speaking Caribbean during the 1960s and 70s. This work uses recently declassified records from The National Archives as source material for painting and drawing.
