Exhibition: Sonia Boyce - Double Bill

09/12/07

Sonia Boyce presents a double bill of Jacques Tourneur’s 1943 B-movie I Walked with a Zombie, and her stunning new work Crop Over commissioned by the Harewood House.


Crop Over began with Boyce’s interest in the Crop Over festival in Barbados, a harvest festival that directly originates out of the conditions of plantation life and sugar production in the Caribbean. Crop Over also responds directly to the history of Harewood House and its relationship to the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

This event was part of the Delfina Studio Trust Artist-Alumni series.
