Event description

Description

Paul Maheke discusses his practice in the Serpentine Galleries Education Space.

Paul Maheke was the lead artist on the 2015 Moving Up commission at Gateway Academy in Westminster, North London. Working alongside dancer Benny Ord, filmmaker Filip Tulak, and Year 6 pupils and teachers, Paul’s project took the form of a series of performative and discursive workshops designed to hold the space for Year 6 pupils to reflect on and share thoughts about their transition from Primary to Secondary school.  A resource following Paul’s residency is currently in the final stages of production to be launched in the 2016-17 academic year.


Paul Maheke

Paul Maheke (b.1985, France) works and lives in London. His practice focuses – through video, installation and sculpture – on the body as both an archive and a territory. With particular attention to dance, he proposes to defuse the power relations that shape Western imaginations. His solo shows I Lost of The Swarm and Green Ray Turns Out To Be Mauve were on show this spring at the South London Gallery and Green Ray. 

Selected upcoming events include: Zong, Turner Contemporary, Margate (Nov. 2016); Saturday Talks, The Serpentine Galleries (Dec.2016); Take the Weight, SixtyEight Art Institute, Copenhagen (2017); De-Centering (working title), Lafayette Foundation, Paris (2017).
