Larry Achiampong

Stanley Picker Fellow

2020

Larry Achiampong is an artist whose solo and collaborative projects employ imagery, aural and visual archives, live performance and sound to explore ideas surrounding class, cross-cultural and post-digital identity. For his Fellowship project, Achiampong will develop a new multimedia public realm work that centres the testimonies of womxn of colour, particularly those of the African diaspora who are especially vulnerable to harm through institutional, economic and structural marginalisation. The focus of his project is to elevate their stories, histories, agencies and ambitions through collaborative practice and intergenerational research.

Achiampong is a 2018 Jarman Award-nominated artist and a 2019 Paul Hamlyn Award recipient (for Visual Arts) and has worked with major institutions on commissions, residencies and exhibitions with spaces including Tate Galleries, the Venice and Singapore Biennales, Somerset House and Transport for London.
