About

Lisa Gorman and 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 mediums; intersecting at two iconic moments in Australian art and fashion history.

The exhibition celebrates the artists’ shared love of colour, illusion, otherworldliness, 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.

This exhibition is designed by Studio Bright and includes works drawn from the Heide Museum of Modern Art, the Estate of Mirka Mora, and private collections. The exhibition will be supported by a limited-edition bespoke publication published by the Warrnambool Art Gallery.

Lisa Gorman and Mirka Mora: To breathe with the rhythm of the heart’ is proudly supported by the Victorian State Government through Visit Victoria and the Regional Events Fund.
