About the work

Drawing inspiration from Ithell Colquhoun’s writings on the ‘Mantic Stain’, Linder’s more recent work has incorporated the technique of decalcomania across images of actors and pinups to concern itself with histories of automatism and psychopathology, tapping into increasingly mystic forms of imaging. A major figure in feminist art, Linder brings into focus the commodification of consumer and sexual appetites by way of a scalpel-sharp commentary on inherited and uncontested roles.

Career Highlights

Linder was born in Liverpool in 1954, and lives and works in London. 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. In February 2025, the first retrospective in London of the artist’s work will be presented at the Hayward Gallery. Linder has presented recent solo exhibitions at Andréhn-Schiptjenko (2023); Blum, Los Angeles (2022); Modern Art, London (2019); Nottingham Contemporary (2018); Chatsworth House, Derbyshire (2018)

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
