Tuesday Talk: Appau Junior Boakye-Yiadom
Join artists, thinkers and curators to explore an aspect of their practice in a lunch-hour. Visiting speakers shape the form of their talk, so you can expect anything from in-depth discussion to a live performance.
Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom examines and re-appropriates memories of the cultural familiar.
"Through a multi-media artistic practice I create hybrid performances where objects and materials are generated – both archival and self-produced – and kinetically combined to form languages of connectivity and multiplicity. In effect the work has often taken a presentational form of an installation where an instigated performance takes place. My work has increasingly incorporated a deep-rooted interest in exploring and evoking physical sensory responses."
Spanning still images and found objects, videos assembled with archival footage, and installations ignited by live actions, Boakye-Yiadom’s works are a refusal of singular narrative, a celebration of multiplicity.
