Malcolm Garrett & Linder Sterling, Album artwork for Buzzcocks, Orgasm Addict, 1977
In this work, a provocatively brash collage by Linder Sterling anchors an overall design by Malcolm Garrett. Linder, as she prefers to be called, is a musician and performance artist who has often mined stereotypical images of sexuality in the visual arts. The collage here features maniacally grinning mouths pasted on to the model’s breasts, a brazen assertion of powerful female sexuality while at the same time broaching the topic of women’s bodies as mass media commodities. Garrett, in turn, overlaid this image on a grid, a move that makes the collage function as an aggressive defacing of the orderly structure underneath.
