Serge Attukwei Clottey (@afrogallonism ) (b. 1985) is known for work that examines the powerful agency of everyday objects. Working across installation, performance, photography and sculpture, Clottey explores personal and political narratives rooted in histories of trade and migration. Based in Accra and working internationally, Clottey refers to his work as “Afrogallonism”, a concept that confronts the question of material culture through the utilisation of yellow gallon containers. Cutting, drilling, stitching and melting found materials, Clottey’s sculptural installations are bold assemblages that act as a means of inquiry into the languages of form and abstraction. Stop by booth C7 at @untitledartfair Miami Beach this week to see works by @afrogallonism From today until Saturday, the fair is open daily to the public from 11am - 7pm and Sunday from 11am - 5pm.

Afrogallonism | Serge Attukwei Clottey uses plastic ‘gallons’ or jerrycans in his art. These jerrycans can be found all around Ghana and are known as “Kufour” gallons after John Kufour. He is the second President of the Fourth Republic of Ghana. During his term there were major water shortages in Accra, the capital of Ghana. The yellow jerrycans were originally used to carry oil from Europe to Ghana and were then used to store water during the water shortages. Almost every home had them. No longer of any use, the jerrycans are being disposed off carelessly and are becoming a problem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Serge decided to repurpose jerrycans as artwork - hunting masks, murals and public installations. It opens up conversations and involvement of the local community. Through his art Serge approaches topics such as sanitation, migration, trade & politics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do follow Serge, the critical artist @afrogallonism ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #jerrycan #plasticwaste #ghana #accra #artforchange #repurposing #golokal #installation #artisttofollow #avinashfinearts

#Repost @a2omag The Purpose of Gallons - collaboration between #photographer @princejyesi and artist @afrogallonism. It depicts Serge decorated in his signature conceptual tool, the woven gallon-container pieces. He appears to be in the process of placing a mask made of the same material over his face. @princejyesi has captured a moment where the artist is in the process of imbuing himself with the ideological symbolism of his work. In other words, he is making himself the artwork. #afrogallonism #contemporaryafricanart #contempoaryartist #visualartist #visualarts #visualartists #arts_secret #artistic_nation #daily_art #sharingart #communityart

This stunning portrait actualises a collaboration between what we believe are two of Ghana’s most exciting artists: photographer @princejyesi and artist @afrogallonism. It depicts Serge decorated in his signature conceptual tool, the woven gallon-container pieces. He appears to be in the process of placing a mask made of the same material over his face. @princejyesi has captured a moment where the artist is in the process of imbuing himself with the ideological symbolism of his work. In other words, he is making himself the artwork. The photo therefore transcends a mere recording of time and location and subject. It is heightened by the process it records. It is invested with symbolism. - #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #princegyasi #princejyesi #photography #africanartists #visualists #afrosurrealism #ghana #collaborations
