“There’s gonna be two parts to this exhibition, the first is about swans. There’ll be drawings of swans, stories about swans, and a band called Swan. With two harpists as the wings, me and Genevieve Fry, Aarti Jadu doing vocals, and a mystery celloist who is yet to be found.

The other part of the exhibition is a ghost exhibition. You can access it through QR codes and it will be stories about what I proposed to do, what I wanted to do, the barriers I faced as a disabled person over the last ten months, and my dreams, and because I couldn’t make them, perhaps you can imagine them for me and they can be real, in the space between us.”

Mishka is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice explores the beauty of neurodiversity within alternative and queer cultural narratives. Mishka studied Fine Arts at VCA and Art Therapy at Phoenix Institute, they continue to explore this rich dynamic between art and psychology. Early in their career, they worked in traditional blacksmithing and as a sculpture technician for Velislav (Will) Georgiev on several large public sculpture works, including works such as Roadside Marker and Sandcastles and Kelp, for the Frankston City Council. Mishka worked as a metalwork technician for Lucas Maddock, building New Hypothetical Continents which featured in the McClelland Sculpture Survey & Award.

Working for more than a decade in Melbourne’s arts communities, Mishka’s diverse experience includes performance art and co-directing both theatre and film shows for the Melbourne Fringe Festival and Gertrude Street Film Festival.

In 2021, Mishka exhibited paintings at Orange, an improv jazz and art exhibition. They have been co-directing, dancing, and creating miniatures for film clips with local musicians such as Aarti Jadu and Haitus Kaiyote. They received a Quick Response grant from the City of Melbourne with which they created a short film expressing their visual vocabulary surrounding their late diagnosis of Autism. Mishka produced a solo theatre production Sublime Meltdown, and in collaboration with Sophia Constantine, produced an audiovisual installation Rage Manifesto for the La Mama War-Rak/Banksia festival.
