Artists probing and objecting in the era of alternative facts.

2 exhibitions - 2 films.

Artists Tania Ferrier and Negin Sharifzadeh will give a one off talk about their incredible bodies of work, the histories that surround them and the challenges faced during creation.

Afternoon tea will be provided and each artist will screen their film.



In 1988, an incident at strip club in New York, where Tania Ferrier worked, inspired her to create Angry Underwear; bras and pants with teeth and eyes on them. Initially designed for the strippers to wear on stage, Angry Underwear went on to become an International media sensation.


In Perth in 1991, the exhibition "Angry Underwear and Other Statements" was briefly closed by the Shadow Minister for the Arts, Mr. Pendal, citing inappropriate use of government funding. This in turn led to thousands flocking to see the exhibition at Artemis Gallery when it was re-opened, an event covered by news outlets, talkback shows, national media and magazines.


Ferrier has written a feature film titled "Angry Underwear" based on the project of the same name, which has already been shortlisted for the Sundance Film Lab in 2018 and is the recipient of Screen Australia Story Development funding. 


Ferrier will exhibit documentation of the original project at NOIR Gallery in Melbourne in February 2018, along with her collection of 'Angry Underwear'.



Alongside Ferrier's works will be Negin Sharifzadeh's exhibition 'Inspector Sorrow'. An interactive narrative based on a sci-fi/noir script, set in the future and the present, via a psychotic break or the manipulations of a criminal mastermind. A cat and mouse chase between Inspector Sorrow and Alice, the story's fractured femme fatale, told through video storyboards, soundscapes, interactive props and ebooks.
