Circuit Social: Bower of Bliss is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.
Come along to our next Circuit social.
Join us for a screening of the English premiere of Linder’s film The Bower of Bliss produced in 2018 for Glasgow Women’s Library. The screening is followed by a range of creative activities inspired by Linderism and led by Circuit, Kettle’s Yard’s young people’s group.
Most well known for her photomontage, this exhibition explores the diverse range of Linder’s practice. It explores Linder as performance artist, zine-maker, musician, documentary-photographer, collaborator, muse, guru, medium and body-builder.
Through the use of the Kettle’s Yard Archive, Linder also approaches Helen Ede’s elusive presence in Kettle’s Yard. Linder reinstates Helen through the creation of ‘House of Helen’, a brand of products available in the shop. A series of new commissions engage all five senses and see Linder staging interventions in all areas of Kettle’s Yard.
Linder was born in Liverpool in 1954 and was an active figure in the punk and post-punk music scenes. Probably best known for the album covers which she created, her photomontages often combine everyday images taken from fashion or home magazines with images from pornography.
Circuit is a group of 18-25 year olds who work on creative events and projects with art galleries Kettle’s Yard and Wysing Arts Centre.
