London-based Achiampong utilises a range of sound media and materials to interrogate assembled representations of identity. With the ubiquitousness of Facebook, Tumblr, and Youtube-based cultures he explores the dichotomies which might exist in an era of personal and interpersonal archives.
Previously, with An Evening of Live Music at DRAF, Achiampong played with some of his own archive – playing vinyl tracks influential to his own music-making practice, while looping a video of a young child playing.
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
