Things That Go Bump In The Night

Last Friday saw the spooktacular launch of ‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’, the first Perth solo exhibition since 2012 by contemporary artist Stormie Mills.

In the spirit of Halloween, Stormie has created a thought provoking body of work that explores the themes of iconography, costumes and commonality.

Despite heavy rain the invitation only event saw There Is reach capacity, with the space transformed into a dark and glamorous cabaret circus filled with characters and curiosities helmed by ringmaster MC Magnus Danger Magnus.

Guests indulged their dark side with cocktails and a decadent banquet served from Edgar Allan Poe’s writing desk, as the 1931 ‘Dracula’ film starring Bela Lugosi was projected silently in the background and a gothic soundtrack created an otherworldly atmosphere.

Nick Sheppard officially opened ‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’, marking the launch of a design collaboration between Stormie and Elroy on a limited edition t-shirt.

A special thank you to our partners for your contribution to an amazing night; Sailor Jerry, Hendricks Gin, Day of the Dead Beer, Vinaceous Wines, Memory Lane Clothing, Northbridge Coffee Roasters and Danger Cabaret.
