Martini, Nerine. (2006). Life Boat/Thuyen Cuu Roi Vietnam:
CreatorsMartini, Nerine

This sculpture is a maquette for a larger work as well as a sculpture in its own right. Both the larger work and the maquette were made in Hue Vietnam during a 6 month artist residency. Life Boat / Thuyen Cuu Roi focusses on the courage and compassion required for journeys of migration and journeys by sea. The skeletal sculpture expresses a poetic interpretation of the lives of Vietnamese people in particular, their relationship to water, both spiritually and as a practical necessity.
