Linder: A Dream Between Sleeping and Waking


In this exciting new installation, contemporary British artist Linder brings together a series of objects alongside new and existing works to create a multi-sensory collage in dialogue with Duncan Grant and Charleston.

A dream between sleeping and waking is how Linder interprets the landscape, history and mythology of Charleston. The surreal, dream-like installation is the artist's homage to the genre of the medieval dream vision – a belief that dreams are a place where truth is revealed and the divine encountered. And in this immersive experience, the works interact with one another and conversations form between them, creating imaginary dialogues.

The title is taken from Duncan Grant's description of the works of Surrealist artist, Rene Magritte.

The artist, who is best known for her radical feminist photomontage and collage works, will be displaying her never-before-seen series of works for the Houston based producer and musician, Rabit, featuring the contemporary queer music collective House of Kenzo, and a fascinating new photomontage series exploring Liverpool football fans' obsession with sports trophies and 'collecting silverware'.

Also in the mix are the artist Mark Lancaster's 1980s portraits of Vanessa Bell and a selection of bespoke items from fashion designer Christopher Shannon's 'Rando Fleece' sportswear – an homage to the tracksuits Duncan Grant was pictured wearing in his later years.

This exhibition includes depictions of sex acts.
