An unreliable guidebook to jewellery

An unreliable guidebook to jewellery by Lisa Walker
Edited by Kate Rhodes and Nella Themelios

An unreliable guidebook to jewellery accompanies the retrospective exhibition Lisa Walker: She wants to go to her bedroom but she can’t be bothered at RMIT Design Hub Gallery, 29 January – 4 May 2019.  

This volume considers how the work of New Zealand jeweller Lisa Walker can be thought of  as a career-length conversation with the question ‘What is jewellery?’ In doing so it foregrounds the act of asking questions and the pleasure and importance of the ‘as yet understood’. The narratives that emerge within this book offer an open ended reflection on Lisa’s work, moving across different time periods, going off on tangents but returning to the many concerns of the field in which Lisa has so firmly embedded herself.
