Larry Achiampong

Larry Achiampong (b. 1984, London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Achiampong's solo and collaborative projects employ imagery, aural and visual archives, live performance and sound to explore ideas surrounding class, cross-cultural and post-digital identity. Drawing on his Ghanaian roots, his works examine his communal and personal heritage – in particular, the intersection between the postcolonial position and pop culture. Through his performances, he investigates ‘the self’ as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at divided selves. Recent exhibitions and commissions include Art on the Underground, UK (2019); Somerset House, UK (2019/2018); Diaspora Pavilion: 57th Venice Biennale, Italy (2017); and Tate Britain/Modern, UK (2013/2010).
