Linder Biography

Provocative and punk, the work of artist Linder Sterling (a.k.a. Linder) examines critical socio-cultural issues by assuming a radical feminist stance. As such, her perspective is most explicitly expressed in her well-known, confrontational collages. These jarring mash-ups combine images from women’s fashion and domestic magazines and pornographic cutouts. Linder’s iconic cover for the 1977 single Orgasm Addict by the Buzzcocks is arguably the most widely known of her montages; in it, the head of a nude woman is crudely replaced by the image of an iron, while two toothy mouths cover the model’s nipples. Like her other collages, this record sleeve pointedly confronts the commodification of the female body as well as sexist stereotypes.

Among Linder’s various other pursuits, she fronted the post-punk band Ludus from 1978 to 1983, and in recent years, she has expanded her work to include performance, photography, and film. By way of these dynamic mediums, Linder has developed new themes dealing with non-conformity, outsider identity, and the exhalation of women.

Linder has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, MoMA PS1 in New York, Tate Britain, Kunsthall Oslo, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, among others. Selected group exhibitions include those at the Musée de la Musique in Paris, Centro Per L'arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci in Prato, and Kunsthalle Vienna.
