Form 6 Art students were delighted to meet with the influential British artist, Linder Sterling, during their visit to her exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary.
Linder, who initially produced edgy collage work based on a Feminist theme during the mid-late 70s Punk era, is known for her photography, radical feminist photomontage, and confrontational performance art. The students met Linder after listening to her speak about the exhibition and her work.
Teacher of Art Mr Iain Prendergrast said, “This trip was the culmination of a year’s work for the students, studying the history of collage from Picasso to Sterling. The students enjoyed the exhibition and seeing pieces that explored the boundaries of art as well as chatting to Linder about it.”
Linder’s work has also served as the inspiration for students working on the recent Form 4 Project. Responding to what it is like to be a young women today, the Form 4 girls have produced some excellent collages inspired by Linder’s work ‘‘OH’ 2000’ . Below are a few samples of their work.
