Duval Timothy is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working between the UK and Sierra Leone. His work includes painting, music, photography, sculpture, design, food, video and textiles.
After being called a 2 Sim in conversation with a stranger whilst on a walk through Freetown (a recording of which features on the record), Duval began to explore what the 2 Sim experience is in contemporary West Africa.
2 Sim was created from 2 months of field recordings and interviews with family, friends and peers in Freetown Sierra Leone. These site-specific recordings are collaged with solo piano recordings and production recorded in Sierra Leone and the UK.
