Symposium 2004 in Vietnam
City of Hue

"Boat People"

This outdoor sculpture symposium took place from 10 May to 15 June 2004 in the former Imperial city of Hue, on the Eastern coast of Vietnam.

After being selected by the organizers, I had a bit of a trek trying to find sponsorship. Eventually, thanks to a recommendation by the Cultural Attaché of the Vietnamese Embassy in London, I was sponsored to this event by a generous former boat people, now the Chairman of a Britain-based company, Mr. Nam Pham, of New World Fashion in London. In Hue I decided to make two sculptures: the first one is called "Boat People", the other "The Maze of Love & Friendship".

The "Boat People" sculpture in steel is located on the bank of the Perfume River, at the foot of the ancient Citadel and right accross from Hue's newly built town hall (headquarters of Hue People's Committee).

Below is the original design and some pictures.

The initial concept

Making the cut out which would be placed on the cast iron sheet afterwards and marked with chalk so it caould be cut out with an acytelene torch

It took 12 men to carry this 430 KG top heavy sculpture
