Warrnambool | A City for Living

Lisa Gorman + Mirka Mora Warrnambool Art Gallery

LISA GORMAN + MIRKA MORA: to breathe with the rhythm of the heart  aligns the work of two pioneering and ground-breaking Australian artists whose practices traverse generations and medium; intersecting at two iconic moments in Australian art and fashion history. 
The exhibition celebrates the artists shared love of colour, illusion, other worldliness, and experimental modes of production, while highlighting the pivotal role fashion and textiles played in their daily lives. The exhibition puts into dialogue select garments from the Gorman label's iconic 2016 and 2018 GORMAN X Mirka collaborations, together with rarely exhibited embroideries, beloved soft sculptures, and never before seen paintings directly from the Estate of Mirka Mora, alongside the unveiling of a large-scale, site-specific, sculptural installation by Lisa Gorman, drawing inspiration from the two fundamental components of weaving, the warp and weft.
