When I was in primary school I didn’t like pets at all, especially dogs and cats. That’s because they were the only pets we had in our house. Everyone but my dad didn’t like them. They were messy, and an added responsibility to our already many house chores. For me, I think it’s because I was once bitten by a dog. Sometimes we’ll forget to feed them or give them water, and my dad will get angry for days, sometimes to the extent of not talking to us. One day my brothers and I returned from school, and saw three puppies in the house. Later that day my dad returned from work and shared the puppies to us. He said taking care of them was our responsibility and he was monitoring who amongst us will be able to take good care of his. It was literally a competition between me and my two brothers. We did well... 🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️! One of my brothers lost his. And when we were moving from Sunyani to Accra, mine left home and so we came without him. The last one went missing in Tema, community 18. Now my friend @afrogallonism loves pets. He likes to have them around him and he be around them. Serge is actually good at taking care of animals. Something I think I’m learning, but it will take time. We spent some time with his dogs Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and Wendy Shay at his Afrogallonism art house this afternoon. . . 📷: Nana Osei - 2018 . . . #accra #ghana #africa #dogs #pet #cats #afrogallonism #sergeattukweiclottey #art #arthouse #streetstyle #streetphotography #animalphotography #storytelling #tema #sunyani #accrawedey #everydayafrica #dynamicafrica #ashantiimmigrant #accrawedey #kponekatamanso

I followed the yellow jerry can road, found yellow jerry can walls, looked through yellow jerry can windows, and walked through yellow jerry can doors. . Spotted their yellow bearded creator, witnessed a procession much later, while constantly feeling like I was in a dream. . Which could have been due to the shot of Akpeteshie I had earlier on in the day, or just the fact that everything @afrogallonism creates makes you feel like you're in an ethereal and very different world. . 360 La was an open exhibition opposite the Artist Alliance Gallery, that saw @afrogallanism collaborate with the people of La Township to create a work of art on the streets of Labadi. .

Open studio exhibition visit with Serge Attukwei Clottey & his community for “360 La” produced by Nana Osei Kwadwo with support from Gallery 1957 #studiovisit #afrogallonism #communitycollaboration 💥
A striking example of the power of art to uplift & engage a community - was truly moved seeing Labadi covered in the yellow gallon sculptures by artist Serge Attukwei Clottey, whose studio space was activated by local traditions involving both young & old #latownship #communitycollaboration #afrogallonism 💥
Up close & personal through one of Serge Attukwei Clottey’s gallon sculptures in his open studio exhibition “360 La”. Clottey calls his work “Afrogallonism” as it interrogates the material, aesthetic & environmental contexts of the ubiquitous yellow gallon containers in Ghana. #afrogallonism #assemblage #communitycollaboration 👌🔍👁
Magic moment from Serge Attukwei Clottey‘s “360 La” - a socially-engaged exhibition culminating in a processional performance with members from the artist’s community young & old #performanceart #communitycollaboration #afrogallonism 💥 ”My community plays a huge part in my work because it serves as my material source and space for production. My work highlights issues about the environment, investigates the work of the Chinese in Africa, and the trade relationship between Europe and Africa. The issues mentioned affect my community, and so how the community relates to them inspires the kind of work I produce. I interrogate the politics around these issues through performance art, photography, painting and installations.” - Serge Attukwei Clottey 💛

Completely mesmerizing installation by Serge Attukwei Clottey involving all the neighborhood by creating an “open studio”. Through the mediums of installation, performance, photography and sculpture, Clottey explores personal and political narratives rooted in histories of trade and migration. He refers to his work as “Afrogallonism”, a concept that confronts the question of material culture through the utilisation of yellow gallon containers. This really was something incredibly special to have seen and experienced today @afrogallonism #artcity #accra #sergeattukweiclottey #contemporaryart
