Larry Achiampong: Wayfinder – Baltic

May 20, 10:00 am - October 29, 6:00 pm

Free
A young black woman stands in a darkened outdoor area. She cups something in her hand and looks up to the sky with a worried expression on her face. This is a shot from the film WayFinder by Larry Achiampong, which will be featured at the Baltic.

This is the first major solo exhibition by British-Ghanaian artist Larry Achiampong, who works in film, sculpture, installation, sound, collage, music and performance.

Achiampong draws inspiration from his heritage to explore topics like class, gender, and the intersection between pop culture and the residues of colonisation.

The exhibition will include a¬†feature-length film¬†Wayfinder (2022), which follows a girl’s journey across England and the people she encounters.
