Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Bury Art Museum, Moving Image Gallery
3 February 2018 - 31 March 2018
On a residency At Praksis in Oslo, Norway, the artists David Blandy & Larry Achiampong worked with paperless migrants to the city, in the production of a film that subverted the computer game Grand Theft Auto V.
The artists worked with individual members from the organisation Mennisker i Limbo (People in Limbo) to develop written scripts, synthetic voice-overs and character avatars, creating a complex tapestry of stories of identity and migration, cultural history and social change.
Commissioned by Praksis Oslo, Norway, in collaboration with Mennisker i Limbo (People in Limbo), in partnership with PNEK, Atelier Nord, and Notam.
