Angry Underwear

In 1988, before Madonna’s pointy bra, Tania Ferrier started a business making feminist underwear for strippers in New York.

It began after an incident at the club when a customer sexually abused a dancer and Tania painted Angry Pussy Pants for her to wear on stage in a show of retaliation. Tania went on to become a media sensation with the project, Angry Underwear and sold her artwork at an exclusive lingerie store in Manhattan, including to celebrities Lauren Hutton, Reno, Odetta and Naomi Campbell.

Years later, Tania has gone on to write a film script called Angry Underwear which has received development funding from Screen Australia. She used her art and writing as a weapon of redemption to deal with the sexual abuse she herself experienced as a child.

Tania will show a retrospective of Angry Underwear at NOIR Gallery in Coburg, Melbourne in February, 2018 and installation in the Salamanca Arts Centre’s Lightbox in July 2018.

In September 2018 Angry Underwear will also feature in the No Second Thoughts: Reflections on the Artemis Women’s Art Forum at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery in Perth.
