Paul Hendrikse (lahir di Terneuzen, 1977), belajar seni patung di Academie voor kunst en vormgeving, Den Bosch, Belanda dan pernah bekerja sebagai peneliti seni murni di Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, Belanda. Karya seni Paul sering muncul dari ketertarikan terhadap seseorang atau peristiwa yang menghuni suatu tempat yang spekulatif atau yang ditetapkan secara berlebihan dalam sejarah. Paul Hendrikse menghasilkan set alternatif pengetahuan di sekitar sejarah mengenai fakta-fakta. Proyek seninya kebanyakan berpusat pada orang-orang bersejarah yang telah meninggalkan jejak di ranah publik. Dengan mengesampingkan narasi master sejarah dan polesan protagonis, ia bergerak menuju kisah-kisah mikro dari individu-individu dan menuju kepada ketidakpastian, mitos-mitos, spekulasi, dan mendistorsi permainan peran yang mengelilingi mereka. Dengan menunjukkan kerapuhan identitas-identitas mereka yang termediasi dan potensi narasi yang tertanam dalam warisan mereka, ia dengan jelas mencela kemungkinan menginterpretasikan sejarah ke dalam sebuah pengertian tunggal otoriter. Proyek-proyek seninya juga sebagian besar merupakan hasil dari penelitian yang ekstensif dan kolaborasi artistik intens bersama fotografer, pengarang, aktor, filsuf, dll. Hasilnya berbentuk katalog publikasi, instalasi dan karya audio visual, serta performance. (www.paulhendrikse.net)

Paul Hendrikse (Terneuzen, 1977) studied sculpture at the Academie voor kunst en vormgeving, Den Bosch, Netherlands and was a fine art researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, The Netherlands. The work of Hendrikse often arises out of a fascination with a person or event who/ that occupies a speculative or overdetermined place in history. Paul Hendrikse produces alternative sets of knowledge around historical ‘facts’. His projects are mostly centered on historic persons who have left a mark in the public realm. Leaving aside the master narratives of history and their polished protagonists, the artist turns towards the micro stories of individuals and towards the uncertainties, myths, speculations and distorting representations surrounding them. By showing the fragility of their mediated identities and the narrative potentials embedded in their legacies, he clearly denounces the possibility of interpreting history in a single, authoritative sense. His projects are mostly the result of extensive research and intense artistic collaboration with photographers, authors, actors, philosophers and so on. The result takes the form of publications, installations and audiovisual work as well as performances.
