“Mis joyas son el resultado de un dialogo con mi propio cuerpo”

María Ignacia Walker, joyera contemporánea nacida en Chile, con un background en dirección de arte publicitaria.
Actualmente reside en Florencia, luego de haber realizado un Magíster en joyería contemporánea y ornamentación del cuerpo en Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewellery.
Su trabajo nace a partir de la investigación de rituales propios traducidos en amuletos y objetos conceptuales que expresan su esencia y se conectan con su cuerpo mediante performances

A simple fact of life that María Ignacia Walker obsesses over: The shedding of hair.
The obsession – losing them, collecting them, ordering them, measuring them and archiving them. The desire – to preserve these losses – It gives rise to “transcendieron”.
The discourse is not about beauty and it is not about sensuality, not even about cultural symbols that hair carries.
How much hair do you lose constantly, everyday?
How many pieces grow out of your body and die every moment?
“The transcendents” are a homage to the moments when you lose your hair.
Captured and immortalized in the fragility of the porcelain, they give perpetuity and freeze all their expressions in the moment of their detachment from the body.
With a threading method, the artist uses horsehair as connectors. They show the lightness, energy and freedom, while demonstrating the real, natural movement of the hair.
Together with the act of keeping and protecting the hair in a porcelain form, they are given another life that keeps them present through their absence.

Un simple hecho cotidiano que obsesiona a María Ignacia Walker: El desprendimiento del cabello.
Perderlos, recopilarlos, ordenarlos, medirlos y archivarlos. El deseo de preservar estas pérdidas da origen a “Trascendieron”.
Un discurso que no es sobre belleza, tampoco de sensualidad y menos de los símbolos o conceptos culturales que existen a partir del cabello.
¿Cuántos cabellos se desprenden constantemente?
¿Cuántas veces al día se desprenden partes del cuerpo?
“Trascendieron” es un homenaje a la muerte de los cabellos, los que son plasmados e inmortalizados a través de la frágil porcelana, que les otorga perpetuidad y congela las expresiones de cada uno de ellos al momento de su adiós.
A modo de hilo, la artista usa los cabellos de caballo como conectores. Ellos entregan libertad, ligereza y energía, características propias de los movimientos naturales del cabello.
Junto al acto de preservar los cabellos en estas formas de porcelana, se hace presente su vida en la ausencia de la misma.  - Text: Josefina Monsalve
