Biters: Larry Achiampong & David Blandy

Biters (re)perform

03 Jul 2014

Live Performance - An evening of sampled beats, appropriated visuals and reconstructed audio with Larry Achiampong and David Blandy

Join the Biters Live, a performance seeing artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy take to the stage. The artists peform a collaged mix of lyrics, musical heritage and visuals drawing from each artists own identity.   This is part of Iniva’s Open Studio & Residency as curated by Teresa Cisneros.  __________________________________________________________
Drawing analogies between art’s history of appropriation and collage and Hip-hop’s legacy of sampling, the project will scrutinise ideas around authorship, copyright and identity. Who owns the products we develop that take inspiration from other sources, is this ‘Biting’ [Hip-hop slang for stealing]? What does authenticity mean in the information age?
