While not compulsive, Sarah Lindner's strong desire to engage with her audience, partly explains the theatricality of her kinetic, or otherwise animated sculptures.
A natural innovator and fecund with ideas, Lindner draws for her subject from personal history, an amalgam of childhood mythologies, family, and the experience of self. These constitute not just a site for exploration, but a domain in which opportunity exists to recover remnants of her gender heritage.
In Hymen, Lindner's stretched membrane deafens in excruciating titillation – a proclamation of her determination to mistress externals, from within.
