Clottey, whose work encompasses performance, film, photography, sculpture and installation, will use Ghana and Africa as his focus point to explore issues such as sanitation, politics, trade, migration and the role of arts in community development.
More specifically Clottey will be presenting the ideas behind his “Afrogallonism” movement to mark his new collaboration with the university’s Responsible Futures Research and Enterprise Team.
The event will take place at The Sallis Benney Theatre 5.30–7.30pm Wednesday 17 October. Entry is free but booking is required.
“Afrogallonism” is the name for Clottey’s work utilising yellow gallon containers that were brought into Ghana as oil jerry cans. These became water storage materials in almost every home in the country due to the shortage of water.
