Professor Surinder Singh in conversation with Linder

Monday, 22nd September 6.00pm. 

Gallery open for refreshments from 5.30pm onwards.


Linder, the first artist on the Tate St Ives Artists Programme, will talk to Professor Surinder Singh, musician and founder of the Raj Academy of Asian Music, about the philosophy of Sikh music and its relation to art practice. The ancient tradition of Naad Yoga ­– a yoga that focuses on sound and its resonance in the body, of which Singh is one of the most eminent practitioners and teachers – seeks to bridge music and the sacred, a key concern in Linder’s work. 


Linder began her study with Professor Surinder Singh in 2009 in parallel to her research into the life and practice of the Modernist sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Linder has been particularly interested in Hepworth’s stringed sculptures and the parallel forms found in the multiple stringed instruments of India. 


The conversation with Professor Surinder Singh will continue the themes explored from their recent conversation during the Play What’s Not There exhibition programme at Raven Row gallery, London.
