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 the performance “Cut to the Chase” 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 this new area of her research”.

Linder is widely known for her work in 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.

Linder has presented recent solo exhibitions at Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Paris (2023); Blum, Los Angeles (2022); Modern Art, London (2019); Glasgow Women’s Library (2018); Nottingham Contemporary (2018); Chatsworth House, Derbyshire (2018); The Hepworth Wakefield (2013); and Tate St Ives (2013). She has participated in recent two-person and group exhibitions at dépendance, Brussels (2022); Tate Liverpool (2021); the Royal Academy, London (2020); Camden Art Centre, London (2020); the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (2019); and Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2019). In 2017, she was awarded the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award. Linder’s works are held in collections including the Arts Council Collection, London; the DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Athens; the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Tate, London.
