Marina Vaizey CBE

Born in New York, date unknown

Marina Vaizey supplied an essay for the exhibition catalogue for Echoes of the Kalabari, a substantial exhibition of sculpture by Sokari Douglas Camp, held at the National Museum of African Art, Washington D.C., 11 November 1988 - 29 January 1989. The essay was titled, A World Between.

From the text: “Sokari wishes to evoke storytelling in her sculpture. Art of course does freeze time, encapsulating and embracing the past, presenting it in the present, and suggesting the future. It is Sokari’s gift to be able to explore the specific and transcend it. She is a creator and a poetic translator, blurring boundaries and limitations to create her world between.”
