SERGE CLOTTEY

Serge Attukwei Clottey (b. 1985) comes from Ghana and is based in Accra. He works across installation, performance, photography and sculpture, exploring narratives of personal, family and collective histories, which often relate to trade and migration. Working locally, but exhibiting internationally, Clottey is the creator of Afrogallonism, an artistic concept that comments on consumption within modern Africa through the utilization of yellow gallon containers. Through cutting, drilling, stitching and melting found materials, Clottey’s sculptural installations are bold assemblages that speak to the international art market as well as to the particular social reality of many people in Ghana. As the founder of Ghana’s GoLokal performance collective, Clottey sees art as a way to transform society. With aspects of activism prevalent in his practice, his works challenge convention and advocate the importance of creativity. In August 2019 Clottey received the award of Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Brighton.
