Are you aware of the loss of your body
We are losing body parts everyday.
Hair, nail, eyelashes,
and countless skin cells.
We are renewing without conciously knowing.
We put on clothes and jewellery,
and forget about those that
once were part of us.
主讲人 / Speaker
Maria Ignacia Walker
María Ignacia Walker obtained her first degree in Art Direction at Universidad del Desarrollo, Chile, 2007. In October 2015 she graduated from an MFA in Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School, Florence. She is based in Florence, Italy where she works as independent artist.
In 2018 she was welcomed into Khio, Oslo National Academy of Art in Oslo, Norway for a special artist in residency programme.
While working on her personal projects Maria likes to share her knowledge by giving lectures and workshops. She has taught in Florence, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Santiago de Chile.
Her artistic realization finds its shape in Wearable Art. She is obsessed with the human body, its changes over time, bodily losses and renewal. Her work is the result of a dialogue with her body, created from the interaction with objects, amulets, installations and performances.
