Serge Attukwei Clottey works across installation, performance, photography and sculpture, exploring narratives of personal, family and collective histories, which often relate to trade and migration. Clottey is best known for his gallon works. These are wall sculpture pieces, net-like objects that are made of several plastic fragments stitched together. These plastic fragments come from (mostly) yellow gallon containers, used by some populations in Africa to collect and store water, when access to piped water is nonexistent.
Serge Attukwei Clottey was born in 1985, and he lives and works in Accra, Ghana. In August 2019 he received the award of Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Brighton.
