Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom (b.1984, UK) examines and re-appropriates collective moments and memories of the cultural familiar. Continually outlining movement, sound, and visuals into a combined narrative. Associating this with a shared relationship in which experiential knowledge is passed on within cultural practices. Working with archive materials that include video footage, images, text and recorded sound, alongside ready-made objects. Creating installations with multi-layered references. Exploiting performative possibilities of cultural commodities, everyday objects, film, music and images. A continual vested interest in dissecting monoculture and extending a refractive practice.
Boakye-Yiadom lives and works in London, received a Post Graduate Diploma from Royal Academy Schools, 2008 and a BA (Hons) in Fine Art; Painting from Winchester School of Art, 2005. Recent projects include: cmYk, Five Years, London (2017), Untitled, New Art Exchange, Nottingham, England, (2017). Critical Contemplation with 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, Tate Exchange, Tate Modern, (2017). Boakye-Yiadom is also a recipient of a Jerwood Visual Arts Artist Bursary, 2017.
