Artifacts collected from the streets and markets of Ghana will be transformed into 2-dimensional collages and 3-dimensional assemblages. Collage and assemblage are excellent ways to explore Ghana and express your own creative instinct. The resulting combination of materials affords the opportunity to create new meanings by recombining objects, both cherished and banal with glue, nails, wire and ingenuity to make evocative works of art. Through this process we can find a new way to look at the elements themselves as well as profile the culture as a whole.
