About

Join Linder in-conversation with Art on the Underground Curator Kiera Blakey discuss her recent public commission ‘The Bower of Bliss’ at Southwark Station.

The commission, an 85 metre billboard, manifests at Southwark station in the histories, mythes and fables of the many women Linder uncovered while artist-in-residence in Southwark. From Londinium sex workers in AD 43; to an 1815 illustration of the Night Queen from Mozart’s opera ‘The Magic Flute’ inspiration for the station architects; to the women who run London Underground today, Linder’s photomontage reclaims the representation of women from the male gaze to form a picture of empowerment for women everywhere.

Linder has been working with photomontage for the past three decades, created from images lifted from erotic, women’s fashion and domestic magazines. The photo montages manipulate and disrupt to challenge cultural expectations of women and in particular the female body as commodity.
