Private View at the V&A

It was wonderful to see "Rosette Cheeks (exploded and capped)" at the Victoria & Albert Museum opening of Undressed - A Brief History of Underwear this evening. She also appeared to be keeping good company.

A Conference of Dangerous Minds - Rome

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”
                                                                                                                                      Franz Kafka

I have the pleasure of being invited to take part in A Conference of Dangerous Minds and The Unveiling of Desire at La Posta Vecchia in Rome. The Laboratory Arts Collective and Marie-Louise SciĆ² have designed a weekend of veritable feasts for the senses. On Friday the 15th April, I will be presenting a reading, which will be intertwined with my current thoughts and musings around the subject of desire.

The rest of the weekends happenings are yet to be revealed........

Female Forces - Women in Art

The premiere of Female Forces - Women in RI Art by the RI Art Archive Project will be screened at the RISD Museum on Thursday 21st April. It seems particularly significant at this time that the image featured on the publicity poster should be one created by The Lavender Hinge.

About Me

My photo
Lisa Z. Morgan is an artist, designer and writer. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic expression both as a motivation and in its embodiment or articulation. Through her creativity and research Morgan examines how the value of provenance, of rarity and storytelling, puts into question or provokes our understanding and relationship towards desire and the desire impulse. Her focus has been how we may access, stimulate and touch the internal points of registration or the emotional dynamics of bodily perception. In essence she attempts to define and make manifest the feeling of feeling. Her work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Morgan is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and the Co-Founder of The Lavender Hinge. She is the author and creative editor of Design Behind Desire and also a contributor to SHOWstudio and The Laboratory Arts Collective.
