Illustration: “Yellow Is The Colour of Water” by Jeremiah Quarshie

“Yellow is the Colour of Water” is a multi-site exhibition project staged by the artist Jeremiah Quarshie in collaboration with curator Robin Riskin. Based out of Gallery 1957 at the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra, the exhibition maps out to a network of site-specific interventions, taking place at the Tema Station lorry park and Kotoka International Airport. The body of work revolves around questions of water and its flows through the city of Accra, as embodied through the ubiquitous yellow “Kufuor” gallons used to store and carry it. Harmonies and contradictions surrounding the vital resource of water are produced through poetics of potential.
