The pioneer visual artist and performer LINDER comes to Greece to participate in a PCAI artist residency programme in Athens and Delphi

1 min read

Shortly before her retrospective at the Hayward Gallery in London, renowned British artist Linder (Linder Sterling, Liverpool, 1954-), comes to Greece to participate in a PCAI artist residency programme in Athens and Delphi curated by Kika Kyriakakou. The programme will culminate on Tuesday, May 21, with a performance at the former Pikionis pavilion, now “Pi” in Delphi.

The origin of “cut to the chase” as an idiom is traced to the cinematic meaning of the verb ‘cut’ and film editing back in the 1920s. Linder’s uncompromising work, whether it is photomontage, performance or video, is all about cutting, cutting out, cutting across media or received ideas. Her pioneering work was recently presented in Greece in the PCAI’s exhibition Sheltered Gardens, 2022-2023, at the Diomedes Botanical Garden, as well as at the National Museum of Contemporary Art EMST, 2024, during Sheltered Gardens publication launch.

Athanasios Polychronopoulos, Polygreen CEO and PCAI Founder, and Kika Kyriakakou, PCAI Artistic Director, state that: “It is with great pleasure that we will be hosting Linder’s artist residency and performance in Delphi and Athens. Linder’s revolutionary work is completely aligned with PCAI’s mission to the arts and we are extremely fascinated to work with this renowned artist in her new area of her research”.

Linder is widely known for her photography, radical feminist photomontage and confrontational performance and as the former frontwoman of the post-punk group Ludus. A retrospective of her work, Femme/Objet, was organised in 2013 by the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, later travelling to the Kestner Gesellschaft, Hanover. Her first institutional survey in the UK, Linderism, was mounted in 2020 at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, later travelling to the Hatton Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne.
