Nara Walker works as an Australian multidisciplinary artist. She is an Alumnus of Australia's internationally recognised University, Griffith University. She holds a BFA Honours. Nara's interest in women's rights has led her to create the conference 'No Woman Alone',

co-found 'RVK Feminist Film Festival' (Iceland) and to progressively sue the Icelandic state in reference to the Istanbul Convention combating gender-based violence at the 'European Court of Human Rights'; where they have agreed to hear her claims.

 

Nara has continued to build her art practice through various mediums that at times cross-pollinate. Her debut appearance as a performance artist was in 2015 at the 'Venice Biennale' with the performance 'Hair Pull', followed by 'Energy String'. Nara performed at Mine Sanat Galerisi in 2016 to open her solo show 'Beauty Amongst Chaos', which was published on the front page of the 'Milliyet' newspaper. Her most recent performance, 'Do you see the colours in the shadow?', was performed at Seven Star Gallery in Berlin, Germany. 

She conveys complex subjects such as; human behaviour, archetypes, sexuality, sensuality, intimate relationships, and the abuse of power within the system. Engaging with her work, Nara explores the tension, resistance, freedom, and triumph between these topics through the artists’ mark, often from an autobiographical and activist perspective. In doing so, commenting on social constructs and expressively referencing identity through varied mediums.
