Nara, who is Australian, has no Icelandic residence permit and no kennitala, but remains stuck in Iceland, in the strange position of neither being allowed to stay in the country, nor to leave it.
As an artist, Nara says that the stressful and prolonged period of doubt in her life has brought with it the opportunity to meet some new and now-very-close friends, and to spend time on her art and her writing.
She has recently held an exhibition at Flæði gallery on Vesturgata in Reykjavík.
RÚV’s Anna Marsibil Clausen met Nara Walker to hear more about her life, her enormous challenges in recent years, and her career as an artist.
The interview was a segment on the Rás 1 programme Tengivagninn, but Anna has kindly re-edited her report especially for RÚV English. Click play above to listen.
