Biography

Larry Achiampong’s solo and collaborative projects employ imagery, aural and visual archives, live performance and sound to explore ideas of cross-cultural and post-digital identity – in particular, dichotomies found within a world dominated by Facebook / tumblr / Wikipedia / YouTube-based cultures. With the enduring expansion and sharing of information via the Internet, the idea of a conservative version of history, as previously dictated, continues to be eradicated. Achiampong crate-digs the vaults of history, splicing audible and visual qualities of the personal and interpersonal archive-as-material - offering multiple dispositions that reveal the socio-political contradictions in contemporary society.
