Surry Hills: The Kirk — 1

One of the most notable buildings on Cleveland Street is The Kirk, a deconsecrated church turned into an arts and performance space by the famous Madame Lash.

Madame Lash was the larger-than-life dominatrix who fascinated the Australian imagination in the’70s and ‘80s. Gretel Pinniger, the woman behind the persona, is now 58 and has moved onto other creations, including the ‘4D’ painting concept she is pioneering. (2004)
