Paul Maheke

Portrait de Paul Maheke
Born in 1985 at Brive-la-Gaillarde (France). Lives and works in Londres (Royaume-Uni).
Through a varied and often collaborative body of work comprising performance, installation, sound and video, Maheke considers the potential of the body as an archive in order to examine how memory and identity is formed and constituted. The artist studied at the École nationale supérieure d’arts in Cergy and at Open School East, London/ Margate.
