Enter, Salome – The Red Goddess

Witness the epitome of dangerous female seductiveness,
with her iconic Dance of the Seven Veils.
Immortalised by Oscar Wilde, and made memorable in Richard Strauss’s Opera.

“No longer was she merely the dancing-girl who extorts a cry of lust and concupiscence from an old man by the lascivious contortions of her body;
who breaks the will,  masters the mind of a King by the spectacle of her quivering bosoms,  heaving belly and tossing thighs;

she was now revealed in a sense as the symbolic incarnation of world-old Vice,
the goddess of immortal Hysteria,
the Curse of Beauty supreme above all other beauties by the cataleptic spasm that stirs her flesh and steels her muscles,
– a monstrous Beast of the Apocalypse, indifferent, irresponsible, insensible, poisoning”
– Huysmans À rebours – Toni Bentley (2002) Sisters of Salome: 24

Kerryx is a smouldering and sultry bombshell waiting to be uncovered (literally!).

Join Kerryx as she takes you on a journey through the darker side of seduction.
With inspirations ranging from belly dance through to both classic and neo burlesque, she is known for her breath-taking performances with a touch of gothic enchantment.

Harzest Mag describes the event as “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times”

DJ Knave Knixx spins the tunes to keep things funky throughout the evening and of course, The Toff has one of Melbourne best stocked bars to keep your creative spirits well lubricated!

Outre Gallery & Dr Sketchy’s present a Tribute to the art of Sylvia Ji

Celebrating five years of sketching entertainment, Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne in collaboration with Australia’s original alternative gallery, Outre Gallery brings you it’s first Art Star tribute session featuring the dramatic art of American painter Sylvia Ji.

Outre Gallery has just made the surprise announcement they will be holding a Pop-Up exhibition at the end of June featuring the powerfully mysterious and enchanting works of Sylvia Ji. With a cult following spanning the globe, this is a rare opportunity to see Sylvia’s paintings outside of America.

Art Star will see Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne presenting a sketch session based on the works of Sylvia Ji. Featuring two of Melbourne’s most loved underground performers recreating Sylvia’s women in ecstasy – images where desire and death sit very close. Sylvia’s works blend the mystery of Dia de los Muertos, the Otherness of femininity, the myths of beauty and a dark latent sexual energy, brought forth in rich colours and dramatic decoration.

Do not miss this rare opportunity to be enchanted by the art of Sylvia Ji and bewitched by the recreation of her images at this very special exclusive Dr Sketchy session.  This will be the first Dr Sketchy Art Star session outside of the US, with previous tributes to legends of the lowbrow and underground arts scene, Ron English, Tara McPherson and Cynthia Von Buhler.

Where: Outre Gallery, 249 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne 

When: Sunday 26 June 4.30pm              

How much: $20 bookings essential (strictly limited capacity)
