BIO:

Paul Maheke (b.1985, Brive-la-Gaillarde) lives and works in London.
He completed a MA in Art Practice at l’École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy in 2011 and a programme of study at Open School East, London in 2015 where he pursued a period of research and a series of public conversations entitled ‘Beyond Beyoncé: Use It Like a Bumper!’.
Maheke was awarded the South London Gallery Graduate Residency 2015-16 and his exhibition ‘I Lost Track of the Swarm’ was exhibited in the first floor galleries in late spring 2016.
His current research imagines the body as an archive using its waters as pathways to information and knowledge. This investigation occupy a metaphorical space wherein which the body resonates and echoes with the broader socio-political and historical context that have birthed it.
With particular attention to dance, it proposes to rearticulate the representations of queer Blackness that emerge from Western imaginations by addressing History through non-human subjectivity.
It is also a way to question social and geographical relationships to places as they relate to a more personal inquiry that mainly deals with unsettling idea of « main-ness ».

Upcoming projects include: Chisenale Gallery, London (2018, solo show); Baltic Triennial XIII (2018); The Centre Cannot Hold Itself, Lafayette Foundation, Paris (2018); Elements of Vogue, CA2M, Madrid (2017); artist-in-residence at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2017).
