In Larry Achiampong & David Blandy's collaborative practice, they share an interest in popular culture and the post-colonial position. They examine communal and personal heritage, using performance to investigate the self as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at their divided selves. They have had a recent solo screening & exhibitions at Tate Modern, London; Plymouth Arts Centre, UK & Fort Worth Contemporary Arts, Texas, USA.
