Known for his work that examines the powerful agency of everyday objects. Working across, installation, performance, photography and sculpture, Clottey explores narratives of personal, family and collective histories often relating to trade and migration. Based in Accra and working internationally, Clottey the creator of Afrogallonism, an artistic concept that comments on consumption within modern Africa through the utilisation of yellow gallon containers. Through cutting, drilling, stitching and melting found materials, Clottey’s sculptural installations are bold assemblages that act as a means of inquiry into questions of form and history.

With aspects of activism prevalent in his practice, his works challenge convention and advocate the importance of creativity.
