FF Gaiden: Alternative is a new video work created through a collaboration between artists David Blandy and Larry Achiampong and Tyneside Cinema’s Youth Group, The Factory.
Together they have used the virtual space of Grand Theft Auto V to explore ideas around the writings of Frantz Fanon, whilst also asking what it means to be entering the adult world at this precise moment in time. The work has been specially commissioned by Tyneside Cinema, and is supported by Arts Council England. It is on display until June 16.
Achiampong and Blandy's Finding Fanon 2 is currently on display in the RECORD level of GAME VIDEO/ART. A SURVEY.
