A new solo exhibition of work by Linder.

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.

Content Warning

The exploration of gender and sexuality is fundamental to Linder’s work. She uses imagery from different print materials, including pornography. This exhibition contains some explicit images, which some visitors may find challenging and may not be suitable for younger visitors. Please ask a member of the Kettle's yard visitor services team for more information.
