Food Forever at Kew Gardens

KEW2 N3 medium2

Food: we love it and we can’t live without it. But the world is changing, and so is what we eat.

Step into the future of food at Kew Gardens’ this summer and discover how we can transform our planet for good through four new art installations across the gardens, including the installation ‘Shooting at Hunger’ by Serge Attukwei Clottey, of which Webb Yates Engineers provided structural engineering services for.

Ghanaian artist Serge Attukwei Clottey presents ideas around food hunger, food scarcity, preservation, and the personal impact of a changing planet.

Using discarded plastics found near his home of Accra, Ghana, Clottey shapes, cuts, weaves and binds refuse into large-scale sculptural installations, designed to engage viewers with issues that impact communities around the world.

Shooting at Hunger takes the form of a vibrant yellow Kufuor gallon, a colourful container used in Ghana for storing and transporting water and food.

If you’d like to visit, the exhibition opens this weekend and runs until 18 September.
