About the artist

Linder (b.1954, Liverpool, UK) is a British artist who is internationally renowned for her photomontages, performances, and radical feminism.

Linder’s production from the 1970s demonstrates her early interest in gender performativity and the commodification of the body. During this time, she created the iconic cover for the Buzzcocks’ single Orgasm Addict, a photomontage of a female nude whose head has been replaced with a hand-held iron. Linder combines imagery that portrays women’s sexuality and domesticity to openly criticize conventional female roles and representation. She culls these materials from contemporary and vintage hardcore pornography publications, large-scale calendars showing idyllic English gardens, as well as automobile, culinary, and fashion magazines. 

Linder’s work has been exhibited widely, including recent solo exhibitions at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, UK (2020); Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, UK (2018); Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, UK (2018); Art On The Underground, London, UK (2018); Glasgow Women's Library, Glasgow, Scotland (2018); Blum & Poe, Los Angeles, CA (2013); Tate St. Ives, Cornwall, UK (2013); Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK (2007); and MoMA PS1, New York, NY (2007). In 2021, Linder was included in the Liverpool Biennial, Liverpool, UK. Femme/object, her comprehensive retrospective, traveled from the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France to the Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, Germany (2013).
