Part of the 'Sex and Politics' series, 'Body and Mask' juxtaposes the industrial kuffuor gallons often used by Attukwei Clottey in his sculptural and performance works against the human form - connecting the politics of water scarcity to the experience of the individual. In the Sex and Politics series of pastel drawings, Clottey reflects on his own social media engagement and its proliferation of one-sided relationships where on one end a persona can be cultivated by an “influencer” or “user” and is received on the other by a “follower.” In To Be A Man the artist abstracts the tendency of western ideals of masculinity spread by social media to influence the preoccupation of contemporary men living in countries such as Ghana and the Congo with new ways of communicating wealth and virility.
