World Oceans Day 2020 with Royal Museums Greenwich: Serge Attukwei Clottey

Film Screening and Talk08/06/20

The Line participated in World Oceans Day 2020 with an online screening of The Displaced, a film by Ghanaian artist Serge Attukwei Clottey. The film powerfully captures a performance on the beach in Accra, which Clottey developed with members of his GoLokal performance collective.

Through the film, Clottey explores his family’s ancestral migration aboard a canoe on the ocean. His provocative performances and artworks seek to engender a greater connection with the climate crisis and oceans and our shared responsibility to take action. Following the screening, watch a film of the artist in his studio in Accra as he introduces his approach and discusses issues raised in his work.

This event is the first iteration of The Line’s Longitudinal Dialogues programme, which develops cultural conversations along the Greenwich Meridian, and we are delighted to be developing this project in collaboration with the Royal Museums Greenwich.
