Paul O'Kane

I am an artist lecturing at Chelsea, SOAS, Middlesex and Central Saint Martins.

I publish articles and reviews in Art Monthly, Third Text, other journals and catalogue essays. As a practitioner I deploy photography, writing and moving image in shows such as There Will Be Others (Angus Hughes, London), For the Sake of the Image (Jerwood Space, London) and So-Called Life (Camberwell Space, London.) In 2013 I curated Downtime – a socially engaged project- at Ort. Gallery, Birmingham. Recent public talks - incorporating writing, photography and performativity- include Where Is That Light Now? (‘X Marks The Bokship’ London.) I completed a PhD in History on the theme of Hesitation (Goldsmiths College, 2009). I am currently developing a text and exhibition proposal to explore photography beyond the analog/digital divide through the concept of ‘Volume’, and preparing limited edition publications to further synthesize his interests in photography and writing.
