Salon 63 | Larry Achiampong

For Salon 63 Larry Achiampong will be performing a special site-specific work from 7-8pm from within Barbershop Fab UK on the Old Kent Road. Achiampong’s performance will explore his own personal archive and record collection, mixed with some of his familial records. The work will investigate traces of his own history and personal knowledge, particularly drawing from his own experiences of growing up in East London and the barber shops there, the experience of being part of a community. This sense of community belonging and spirit seems particularly pertinent given the continued threats of gentrification in the area, where many of these valuable community salons will soon be displaced.
