Ato Annan

Ato works across media and he is not restricted to any form of style for his work. He uses video, sound, performance and painting among others. The idea he wants to depict dictates his choice of medium. He sees himself as an exhibition maker rather than being a curator.

His work consists of multilayered paper collages of advertisement posters torn from the streets of Accra and narratives he comes across in public transports, kiosk and food and drink stalls among others. He refers to this phenomenon as ‘Urban Proverbs.’  His work is a portrait of his urban space at its schizophrenic ephemeron.
