Biters is a new partnership between artists David Blandy and Larry Achiampong. Building on solo projects that explore both artists’ interests in popular culture and the post-colonial position, Biters presents new collages that combine lyrics and sounds that draw from each artist’s identity and musical heritage, while posing the question, what does Authenticity mean in the information age?

In an evening of sampled samples, regurgitated rhymes and deconstructed soul, David Blandy and Larry Achiampong will (re)perform live.

David Blandy and Larry Achiampong share a quest for truth and authentic experience via the cultures that have influenced them, investigating how our identities are shaped by everyday art forms, such as television and music.

Larry Achiampong is a British-Ghanaian artist who has exhibited and performed in various institutions within the UK and abroad including Tate Britain/Modern; London, Hauptbahnhof (dOCUMENTA 13); Kassel, Iniva; London, ICA; London, and the Bokoor African Popular Music Archives Foundation; Accra.

David Blandy has exhibited at venues such as The Baltic, Gateshead The Bluecoat as part of the 2008 Liverpool Biennial, Turner Contemporary, Margate, Spike Island, Bristol, 176, Londonand Platform China Project Space, Beijing.
