Paul Maheke ‘The Origin of Death’. From series of performative lectures ‘Bodymerge’ at SODAS 2123

Paul Maheke ‘The Origin of Death’. From series of performative lectures ‘Bodymerge’ at SODAS 2123

The series of performative lectures ‘Bodymerge’ begun on 6 October, 2022 at SODAS 2123 (Vitebsko 23, Vilnius), in which Lithuanian and international artists expand the boundaries of the lecture format in presenting their latest work. Compiling texts of various kinds, borrowed or written by Maheke himself, ‘The Origin of Death’ is a performative lecture that takes the shape of a collective meditation on different forms of interconnectedness. Through storytelling ranging from sci-fi to diary notes, it explores the tenuous border between the visible and the invisible. Paul Maheke (b. 1985, Brive-la-Gaillarde, France) lives and works in Montpellier in France. He completed an MA in art practice at the École nationale supérieure d’arts de Cergy (2011), and was an associate in the programme of study of Open School East in London and Margate in the UK (2015). With a focus on dance, and 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 are formed and constituted. Maheke’s works and performances have been shown at High Line, New York, Tate Modern, London, the Venice Biennale, Pompidou Centre, Palais de Tokyo and Lafayette Anticipations in Paris, Baltic Triennial 13, Manifesta 12, Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich, and the Chisenhale Gallery, London, and elsewhere. The ‘Bodymerge’ series is curated by Neringa Černiauskaitė. Video by Jokūbas Čižikas SODAS 2123 The series is supported by the Lithuanian Council for Culture and Vilnius City Municipality.
