Intro
Walker’s work is delightfully risky, a poetry of found objects treated with serious intent as well as playful humour.
Walker’s work is delightfully risky, a poetry of found objects treated with serious intent as well as playful humour. She transforms pretty much everything into jewellery and her work forces you to keep bumping into the limits of the preconceptions you hold about what jewellery is.Unwearable’, the title of her book, nicely highlights her agressive challenge to tradition on a material, conceptual and sometimes even practical level. Some of Walker’s jewellery is pretty unwearable, but the fact that we keep asking ourselves what would happen if we put it on is important.
