Since his show at Assembly Point during January/ February, Paul Maheke has gone on to perform at Tate Modern in its series of performance evenings ‘Ten Days Six Nights’ and is now preparing for his participation in a group show at The Approach gallery ‘The problem with having a body/ is that it always needs to be somewhere’.
Spanning across generations and geographical and political contexts, the artists in the exhibition share a concern with the way the female body occupies, structures and integrates with its surrounding space. Methods of casting and the direct contact between the body and the material are prevalent in the exhibition, exploring the human scale, performativity and spatiality through movement and physical labour.
Maheke’s work will be shown alongside Alexandra Bircken, Heidi Bucher, Kiki Kogelnik, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, B. Ingrid Olson, Zilia Sanchez, Ana Vieira and curated by Nora Heidorn. Catch a first glimpse of the show at the preview April 6th, 6-9pm or visit any time up until the 14th May.
