Linda Post

Multimedia Artist & Educator (US)

from: 01.09.2018

Linda Post is an US multimedia artist and educator who explores the sculptural limits of time-based media via video, installation, sculpture, audio, and photography. Her work is often site-specific, involving psychogeographic mental and aesthetic explorations; a choreography of the everyday; and the creation of links across time and space.

Post’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the US, frequently in Texas and New York. On an international scale, her work has been shown in London, Berlin, and Amsterdam. Articles online and in print about her exhibitions include those in magazines such as Artforum, Photography Quarterly, Art in America, Glasstire, and catalogs such as eflux video rental. Post wrote about her collaborative work with Robert Appleton IGVONNE (2012) in Media-N.

In an interview together with SomoS, Post stated:

In my current project I attempt to locate the steps of those from the past and retrace them in the present. I am interested in the gap inherent in this pursuit.
