DUKE AND BATTERSBY: INFERNAL GROVE STUDY GROUP

Workshops
With Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby

Led by artists Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby, Infernal Grove Study Group honours the intelligence and expertise of drug users. It provides space for unsystematic structural analyses of drug use, addiction and recovery (not necessarily in that order). It is anti-carceral, anti-prohibition and seeks to amplify the voices of radical harm reductionists and their coalitions. It recognizes the value of the sacred while rejecting all forms of piety. It posits wonder and the land as spaces of enchantment, as not an antidote to but an extension of the space opened up by drugs. This discussion is based on the artists’ lived experience of drug use and the consequent interventions of state and medical establishments, which included both involuntary hospitalization and outpatient rehabilitation.
