About the Artists
In Larry Achiampong and David Blandy’s collaborative practice, they share an interest in popular culture and the decolonial position. They examine communal and personal heritage, using performance to investigate the self as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at their divided selves.
Larry Achiampong (b. 1984) is a British-Ghanaian artist who has exhibited, performed and presented projects in various institutions within the UK and abroad including the Logan Center for the Arts, Chicago; Tate Britain and Tate Modern, London; Hauptbahnhof (Documenta13), Kassel; Iniva, London; and the ICA, London.
David Blandy (b. 1976) has exhibited at venues nationally and worldwide such as Bloomberg Space, London; The Exchange, Newlyn Art Gallery; Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum, Helsinki; MoMA PS1, New York; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai. He is represented by Seventeen Gallery and his films are distributed by LUX.
