'Biters' at V&A Museum, London Friday 31st October, 2014

Biters: Larry Achiampong and David Blandy will be performing at the V&A London, Friday 31st October as part of Friday Late, "Collections of Collections".

Grand Entrance
Larry Achiampong and David Blandy will be sharing sounds from their connected audible heritage. In their performance 'Biters', the artists will be investigating what identity means in the post-colonial and post-mass media age as they acknowledge the debt their practices hold to hip-hop culture and its relationship with art and appropriation by presenting a recycled collection of already-sampled beats and reciting a collection of stolen rhymes.                                     

Collections of Collections

Friday 31 October 18.30 – 22.00

From art works to ice-cream wrappers, from vinyl records to blog posts and tweets, what do our personal collections say about us? Join us as we investigate and celebrate with an evening of curios, accumulation and curation. Discover our relationships with objects and delve into what we collect and why this activity has one-in-three in Europe and North America hooked.

All events are free and places are designated on a first come, first served basis, unless stated otherwise. Filming and photography will be taking place at this event.

Please note, if the Museum reaches capacity we will allow access on a one-in, one-out basis.
