The scrap metal sculpture of the catfish head symbolizes the devastating impact that oil production has had on the riverine communities in the Niger-delta of Nigeria. These communities have relied on the river for their livelihood, but the contamination of the water and land due to oil spillage has made farming and fishing impossible. The image of the catfish head on a stake is a powerful symbol of the loss of a way of life that was once thriving. This sculpture is a tribute to the resilience of these communities and a call to action for change.
