Sokari Douglas Camp - Festival Boat

This piece was commissioned from the artist as part of the final Festival of Sculpture in 1989 which marked the end of the Development Corporation in Peterborough. This large concrete piece on the bank of the river Nene takes as its source the festival boats used ceremonially in the artist's native Nigeria.

Sokari Douglas Camp studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts, Central School of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, London.
