Ghanaian artist Serge Attukwei Clottey talks about the plastic jerry cans he turns into tapestries and installations for which he coined the term Afrogallonism, how found articles such as these are central to his sustainable arts practice, how he reflects the culture and identity of his homeland, how he has involved the local community in his art, how he learnt to add performance to his work, the artistic importance of water in both local and global terms, and about his latest sculpture called Tribe and Tribulation which has become a permanent feature of London’s sculptural trail, The Line.
