Title: Collage and Contemporary Ghanaian Iconography: An Exhibition Project
Authors: Komla, Attah Prosper
Issue Date: 21-Jun-2011
Abstract: This thesis explores non-visual sources of contemporary Ghanaian iconography for collage. Basically, I focus on themes from proverbs, incantations, folklores, songs etc., found among the people of Avatime in the Volta Region, which can be adopted for collage making. The central idea for this project is to produce a number of collages that expresses the philosophies, ideas and values of the contemporary Ghanaian with emphasis on the people of Avatime traditional area. To achieve these objectives, I interviewed some custodians and senior citizens to tap from them meaning and moral values from proverbs, maxims, drum languages, incantations, folklores etc which I later developed into series of symbols before finally developing them into catalogues of collages meant for exhibitions and peer review. By the end of the project, I have realized that, the non-visual forms of contemporary Ghanaian iconographies could best worth their purpose, if they are represented in visual or pictorial images such as collages.
