Biters: Larry Achiampong & David Blandy at the V&A, London, Oct 31st

Added on by Claire Blandy.

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


Grand Entrance
Larry Achiampong and David Blandy shared sounds from their connected audible heritage. In their performance 'Biters', the artists investigate 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.
