In Space and Interspace

The dominant theme in Linhardt’s work is that of space and interspace. Redefined by the use of partitions, these spaces always retain a certain transparency, and with it the ability to merge, overlap and re-live their former state. A feeling of movement and fluidity pervades her work, with changes to the partitions and shifts in the observer’s viewpoint creating other new and different spaces. Her work is reminiscent of a stage set: moving elements create temporary spaces to provide the setting for different experiences and actions at different times. (Nancy Spero)
