Dora presents works by Russian sculptor, artist and designer Dora Gordine, personally selected by a group of major contemporary artists.

About

Each artist will present 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. Whilst Dorich House Museum stands today as testament to the creative vision of a singularly enigmatic and ambitious individual, Gordine died relatively forgotten, her own personal style of figurative sculpture long out of fashion. Over the last decade, a revival of interest in her work has resulted in an international retrospective, a monograph, and her present inclusion in the prestigious national collection displays at Tate Britain.
