Linder makes works for the theatre and provides ‘Choreographic Services’ for contemporary art contexts.
At Liverpool Biennial 2016, Linder presented a new performance, Some Strands of Support, from 7th-9th October. Linder refers to the work as a choreography for hair prostheses in which a designated object, sculpture or statue is cared for and coerced by the touch of hair. For this performance, Liverpool Biennial hired three days of ‘haircare’ for a statue of Apollo Sauroktonos, which is part of the Ancient Greece episode, exhibited at Tate Liverpool.
In 2016, Linder participated in the ‘Made in LA’ Biennial at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles where he was also awarded the Mohn Prize for artistic excellence, as well as in the 20th Biennale of Sydney. Recent shows have included Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2015) and The Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2016). His works have been commissioned, presented and hired by HAU Hebbel-am-Ufer Theatre, Berlin; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw; and Frieze LIVE, London; amongst others. In the past Linder performed with the Michael Clark Dance Company, Meg Stuart’s Damaged Goods and The Royal Ballet London. He is represented by SILBERKUPPE, Berlin.
