Fatric Bewong deals with painting, installation and performances. For some time now, she has focused her practice on waste found on the coastline of Ghana. She recycles the plastic that she collects into hand-stitched permanent or temporary costumes, which she uses for site-specific performances. Some of the waste materials she uses are black shopping polythene bags. This helps her to raise awareness on how human action is a threat to the environment and how to transform these plastics into functional items. Her work focuses on the radical climate changes that affect nature in Ghana specifically in the city of Accra. West African markets, religious traditions, weddings, funerals and cultural gatherings form her inspiration.
