Linder

Born in Liverpool, UK
Lives and works in St. Ives, UK

Linder, a prominent figure in the punk and post-punk Manchester music scene, is one of the most influential artists shaping the visual manifesto of an artistic movement that rejected the social and political trajectory, out of which came bands like The Fall, Joy Division, the Buzzcocks, Magazine and The Smiths.

Her 30-year body of work of collages and photomontages is created with a methodology much in common with the subversive practices of the times: Ripping things apart and reassembling them as a way of showing the counterfeit quality and construction of any social image through juxtapositions that normally remain indistinct.
A feminist artist, a fundamental characteristic in her work is its arresting impact. Her collages are composed of elements that previously possessed a matter-of-fact significance, evoking a disturbing impression of familiarity – even more so by appropriating the very aesthetic of the glossy magazines she sources from. The iconography heightens this feeling, as it refers to standardized imagery as reflected in consumer society. Objects of the claustrophobic domestic universe and beyond are brought into contact with pornography, photographs of household objects, machines, cakes, animals or flowers – to name only a few – are intersected with images of nude women, enhancing their objectification as sexualized bodies. She famously designed the single cover for Orgasm Addict by the Buzzocks (1977), showing a naked woman with an iron for a head and grinning mouths instead of nipples.
