Che Applewhaite is an artist, filmmaker and writer. He facilitates engagement with how ongoing histories interfere with intimate, difficult and collective experiences. His works combine analogue and digital media in hybrid documentary forms. These works embed listening as both practice and ethic of invention, embracing the pain of change and honesty that James Baldwin taught us loving ourselves and each other requires.

Applewhaite’s sculptural work untitle “HANDLE WITH CARE” asks exhibition venue staff and attendees to activate a poetic and philosophic dialogue with an auto-fictional character called R.P.J. across both physical and online spaces. Its components together meditate on hurting and healing intimacies shared in the wake of colonial powers collapse.

Che Applewhaite has presented work at Transmediale (Berlin, 2023), Museum of Contemporary Art (Cleveland, USA, 2023), Cubitt Gallery, (London, 2022), and the National Gallery of Art (Washington, USA) 2022.
