Linder with Hannah Wilke
Alison Jacques presents a two-person exhibition pairing, for the first time, internationally renowned artists, Linder (b.1954, Liverpool, UK) with Hannah Wilke (b.1940, New York; d.1993, Houston, US). The exhibition runs concurrent to Linder’s solo exhibition ‘A Dream Between Sleeping and Waking’ ongoing at Charleston, UK (until 12 March 2023).
Both artists are recognised as pioneers, provocateurs and radical feminists with work spanning photography, performance, photomontage, and in Wilke’s case, sculpture and drawing.
For Linder, this exhibition focuses on photomontages from 2007 to the present, in which she explores the possibilities for subverting the deeply encoded narratives sold through pornographic magazines of the 1970s–80s.
For Linder, the rose is a signature weapon as is the vaginal fold for Wilke, who repeatedly returned to this sculptural form, experimenting with it through such radical materials as latex, erasers, gum, and, originally, terracotta, clay, and, later, porcelain.
