Jordy Walker (1977) is a Rotterdam-based artist with a diverse practice; he is a visual artist, a musician and a theater maker.
Often a system of interconnected narratives based on i.a. early memories, family history or cultural icons provides a framework for his visual art. He engages spaces and objects in ways that reveal underlying structures and patterns which he makes visible through the use of technique or material. By, for example, using repurposed materials that evoke associations, he opens the viewers' eyes to new, alternative stories.
Walker explores the fluidity of ideas and images and how they weave together. He treats elements and narratives from previous and parallel works or experiments as components of an artistic palette that reappears in different contexts, as he investigates the multiple possibilities of his material.
