DORA, STANLEY PICKER GALLERY, 8 OCTOBER – 8 NOVEMBER 2015
Dora presents works by Russian sculptor, artist and designer Dora Gordine (1895-1991), personally selected by a group of major contemporary artists, Fiona Banner, Cullinan Richards, Hilary Lloyd and Nicole Wermers. Each artist presents works of their own alongside that of Gordine, to reflect upon her artistic legacy, whilst considering her fascinating life story and the impressive studio home Dorich House that she designed for herself in 1935 on the edge of Richmond Park along Kingston Vale. Almost a century after first establishing her name in Paris, the range of works presented in Dora offer a subtle and intriguing dialogue around the political, social and artistic challenges facing Gordine as she developed her career.
