Sampling is the modus operandi of artist Ryan Riddington who is the next guest in Periphique, an informal and occasional series of events organized by Information Assistants at the Henry Moore Institute

'Mantle' Ryan Riddington

For his presentation ‘Chesterfield’, Riddington reads from his essay ‘It/If’. Situating his artistic practice within the context of US hip-hop and UK trip-hop, this reading looks at the recycling, reconfiguration and re-contextualization of music and lyrics to consider the practical and social implications of hip-hop’s material processes such as notions of status, home and self-esteem. 

Ryan Riddington is a London based artist who worked at the Henry Moore Institute for six years as an Information Assistant before studying on the MFA at Slade School of Fine Art from 2008
