The Expulsion

The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present the fifth of the screenings of Art from the African Diaspora as part of Alice Rekab’s multi-platform project FAMILY LINES: The Expulsion by Larry Achiampong (2019).

The Expulsion is a deeply personal work crafted from the imagination of Larry Achiampong. The short film highlights the rich interior world of an unnamed migrant with references to themes of race, class and gender.

Aiming to platform the voices of other artists of colour and to represent intergenerational legacies of self-representation in the production of film, writing and visual art, Alice Rekab and The Douglas Hyde have invited Larry Achiampong to co-curate the screening series by selecting a film that influenced and/or inspired him. Achiampong has invited London-based artist Jennifer Martin to screen her work TEETH (2019). TEETH will be screened online next month from 10 until 24 of March. For more details see the event page here.

We will also have a special in-person screening of The Expulsion and TEETH on 10 March at 6pm. For more details see the event page here.

Considering the crossovers between The Expulsion and TEETH, Larry Achiampong has created the below introductory sound piece to accompany both films.
