Biographies

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 – in particular, dichotomies found within a world dominated by social media and digital frameworks. Achiampong has exhibited, performed and presented projects within the UK and abroad at Tate Britain, London; Tate Modern, London; dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel; The Institute For Creative Arts, Cape Town, among others. 

Libita Clayton (b.1987, lives and works, Bristol UK) graduated from Wimbledon College of Art, (2006-2009) with a BA (hons) in Print and Digital Media. She has gone on to have a collaborative practice that plays with potential political and physical collapse – always. Clayton proposes ‘a way out’ with D.I.Y performance. Her practice held –  in flux – in between like a sticky dance floor. Currently exhibiting at the Diaspora Pavilion, Venice, Italy, 2017. Recent projects include: bland choreography, (CLAY- TON – RAW- SON), New Year / New Noise 4, Arnolfini, UK (2017), RESIST FLOW, (Gal-Dem) Victoria and Albert Museum, UK (2016), 1,2,1,2, //// black- voices – opera, (BBCF) Royal West of England Academy, UK (2016), FORGET THAT GUY (message from a freedom fighter), Book Works, Hull Freedom Festival, UK (2016), In the Absence of Ruins there Will be Innovation, (Speakeasy Southwest), Arnolfini, UK (2016) BS2; RESIST & REVOLT, BLACK HISTORY – LIVE TRANSMISSION, BEEF HQ, UK (2015)
