Vernissage “Linder. Woman/Object”
Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris31.01.2013 #art
The Museum of Modern Art begins 2013 with the first major restrospective dedicated to British artist Linder Sterling. A proven feminist known for her punk collages, she has constantly denounced women’s object-culture through multiple creative media, from visual arts to music and fashion. Breaking the ideal image of woman by portraying her alienation, such is the mission of her works, which she herself described as “self-made”. Oscillating between fashion aesthetic and punk, the 200 pieces presented threw a big paving stone into the pool of advertising imagery. The opening was also the occasion to discover the Premiere of the ballet “The Ultimate Form” and its costumes made by the creator Pam Hogg. Cindy Sherman and Diane Pernet can attest to this: Linder is definitely not an object woman.
