Sofitel Melbourne on Collins - Luxury hotel - MIRKA MORA: PAS DE DEUX—DRAWINGS AND DOLLS


A beloved and central figure in the cultural life of Australia, Mirka Mora long captured the public imagination with her distinctive art and inimitable personality.


Commemorating her extraordinary life and career, Heide Museum of Modern Art brings together some of the artist’s most personal work: drawings and soft-sculpture dolls from her home and studio. For Mirka these two art forms went hand-in-hand. ‘My dolls are my drawings in three-dimensions’, she said.


The myriad works on display offer a glimpse into Mirka’s enchanting private universe, where hybrid characters derived from fairy tales, folk art, surrealism and the artist’s vivid daydreams intermingled. Together they create a compelling portrait of Mirka’s innermost self.


Location: Heide Museum of Modern Art, 7 Templestowe Road, Bulleen


Dates: 27 October 2018 – 24 April 2019


Tickets available for purchase at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins Concierge Desk.
