About

Larry Achiampong’s practice uses live performance, imagery and sound to explore representations of identity in the post digital age and the dichotomies found within a world dominated by cut-copy-paste facebook/tumblr/youtube-based cultures; in doing so he too becomes absorbed by this phenomena, as he crate-digs the vaults of history, splicing the audible and visual qualities of the personal and interpersonal archive-as-material.

Via his alternate egos such as the mythical, tortured soul that lives in a dystopian parallel life called ‘Black Ph03nix’ and the seemingly funny, yet silently uncomfortable, familiar, alien-like form known as ‘Cloudface’, Achiampong’s work presents multiple personalities that reveal the socio-political contradictions in contemporary identity.
