Frieze 91 London: Studio Visit with Larry Achiampong

October 2023
London, United Kingdom

Frieze 91 members are invited to a series of studio visits taking place across our fair cities with artists from the Focus section of Frieze London in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the fair.

Drawing on his Ghanaian roots, Larry 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. With the expansion and sharing of information via the Internet, the idea of a one- size-fits-all version of history, as previously dictated, continues to be eradicated. Achiampong crate-digs the vaults of history, and splices audible and visual qualities of the personal and interpersonal archives offering multiple positions revealing the socio-political contradictions in contemporary society. Achiampong’s works examine his communal and personal heritage - in particular, the intersection between pop culture and the postcolonial position, using performance to investigate ‘the self’ as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at divided selves.
