Larry Achiampong & David Blandy: Finding Fanon

Wednesday 9 May / 7pm / The Box / Booking Required

“Their flesh continues into the network, haunting their avatars. They construct themselves again here, but their scars remain.” Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, Finding Fanon (Part 3)

David Blandy and Larry Achiampong’s work explores their friendship, and wider issues of empathy, race and power, through film, performance, and socially engaged practice. Their work FF Gaiden: Control was commissioned as part of FACT’s Criminal Justice programme, and features in the current FACT exhibition States of Play: Roleplay Reality.

Join the artists for a short and intimate audio-visual performance exploring the main themes which run throughout the Finding Fanon series, featuring a live embodiment of the script developed across the last five years of the project.
