LISA WALKER AT TE PAPA MUSEUM, WELLINGTON
Te Papa Museum in Wellington is currently staging a major retrospective of Lisa Walker’s work: I want to go to my bedroom but I can’t be bothered, charting her remarkable 30 year career from her studies in Dunedin in the late 1980s, through her time completing her Diplom and etsablishing herself as a major new talent in Munich, to her return to New Zealand and today.
Throughout her career, Lisa Walker has pushed toward the extreme. She is described as a ‘contemporary archaeologist’, excavating culture, art, fashion, and photography for ideas and materials. An extraordinary range of works is on display, made from materials including copper, pearls, and pounamu, to found objects like LEGO, cell phones, and egg beaters.
I want to go to my bedroom but I can’t be bothered runs until 22 July.
