About

Sorcha Dallas is pleased to announce the first exhibition in the gallery by the seminal artist, performer and musician Linder, ‘King's Ransom (Hybrid Tea)'. This show will coincide with her new performance, ‘The Darktown Cakewalk: Celebrated from the House of FAME', to be previewed at Glasgow International at the Arches on the 23rd April and then touring to Chisenhale Gallery on the 10th July. Over the last three decades Linder has used music, performance and collage as a vehicle for the examination of self through which she questions the commodification of the female form within society. She was involved in the Manchester music scene in the 70s and 80s through performing in her band Ludus, collaborating on the fanzine The Secret Public with Jon Savage and creating album artwork including the 1977 Buzzcock's sleeve Orgasm Addict. This infamous sleeve was from a series of collages combining naked images of glamour models with household utensils, creating monstrous hybrids which reflected the apathetic sexism of the time. In recent performances she has adopted the personas of Ann Lee and Clint Eastwood as a way of combining cross-historical identification with the disruption of gender norms. http://www.ctbureau.co.uk/editions/the-protagonist-linder-sterling
