Artist list

Lisa Walker
Over the last few decades, jewellery design has developed into an artistic language in which all materials, media and formats are investigated. Since 1980, the Françoise van den Bosch Prize has been awarded biennially to an international jewellery artist whose work is experimental, innovative and strongly expressive in character. The prize also involves the acquisition of one of the prize winner’s works for the Françoise van den Bosch collection, which is currently on loan at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. 

New Zealander Lisa Walker (1967, Wellington) is the 2010 prize winner. In this exhibition she is showing new work; mostly large necklaces displayed in colourful contexts. The artist explores the boundaries of the accepted, the expected and the wearable.
She represents a young generation of jewellery makers who combine a feeling of detachment with an enormous vitality as well as a sensitivity for contemporary trends. Walker’s jewellery are assemblages of waste material of our consumer society. Lisa Walker studied Craft Design in Dunedin (NZ), and went on to travel and work in Australia, Great Britain and Asia. From 1995-2001 she studied with Otto Künzli at the Academy for Fine Art in Munich. In 2009, Lisa Walker returned to New Zealand, where she works with artist-colleagues and gives workshops and lectures across the world. 

A publication will be released in conjunction with the exhibition.
