Kusthal presents inventive fashion photographer Tim Walker

Tim Walker is one of the world’s most inventive fashion photographers. The compelling exhibition Tim Walker: Wonderful Things at Kunsthal celebrates his rich imaginative power from September 24.

With elaborate and often surreal sets, his photographs transport the visitors to enchanted worlds. Tilda Swinton, Grace Jones, Grayson Perry, as well as many other muses and models, feature in this largest-ever exhibition about Tim Walker – with over 150 new works inspired by the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London.

At the heart of the exhibition are ten new photographic series that are directly influenced by the treasures in the V&A’s huge collection. The wide-ranging and eclectic collection of this museum for art and design is a source of inspiration for Walker.

Important themes in his work are nostalgic childhood memories and his love of nature. While subjects like identity and emotions are central to the exhibition as well. Walker wants to embrace diversity with his work.

“I’m interested in breaking down the boundaries that society has created. To enable more varied types of beauty and the wonderful diversity of humanity to be celebrated,” says Tim Walker

Tim Walker’s unique imaginative world

Creative studio MAISON the FAUX is responsible for the design of Wonderful Things at the Kunsthal. As their point of departure, they have taken the spectacular design that British set designer and creative Shona Heath – Tim Walker’s long-term collaborator – made for the exhibition of the same name at the V&A.

Marianne Splint (Kunsthal): “It is amazing that we can offer an opportunity to immerse themselves in Walker’s unique imaginative world.”
