Lip pin set
3 enamel lip pins on printed card
This new limited edition has been made by Linder exclusively for House of Voltaire. These limited edition pins come displayed on a printed card and make the perfect gift!
Lips are a recurring motif if Linder's wide ranging practice that includes collage, photography and performance. Emerging from the Manchester punk and post-punk scenes in the 1970s, Sterling focuses on questions of gender, commodity and display. Her highly recognisable photomontage practice combines everyday images from domestic or fashion magazines with images from pornography and other archival material. Cut and collaged by hand using a scalpel and glue, the juxtapositions recall a rich art history harking back to Hannah Hoch and the Dadaists.
