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, and 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 has exhibited, performed, and presented projects within the UK and abroad, including Tate Britain, London, Tate Modern, London, dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel, The British Film Institute, London, Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, New Art Exchange, Nottingham, SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin, Bokoor African Popular Music Archives Foundation, Accra, and The Mistake Room, Los Angeles.
