More about the artwork
Kissss me. 2014
Kissss me, dated 2014, is a remarkable artwork by Sokari Douglas Camp. A traditional Kalabari figure is represented for the first time in total red. The figure wears a headdress that inspires definite anthropological references. At the same time, its leaves recall the environmental issue. According to the artist’s words, this subject was inspired by her daughters’ goodbye after having spent the summer together. A family moment impressed in art. Sokari assisted the loud and lipstick-colored kiss between the daughters and took inspiration from there for a new, bright kiss where all her artistic features and communicative intent participate. Of course, not without irony.
