David Lindert (1992) is a Czech-born artist living and working abroad, mostly in Berlin who is currently in residence at TOM House. Lindert presents an extensive work spanning different media, including recent poetry, sculptural assemblages and photographs. Deploying an autobiographical approach, the works mirror, process and translate his daily experiences. Recurring themes include anxiety, alienation, vulnerability, addiction and childhood trauma. The relentless self-exposure stemming from social media’s sharing imperative and evidenced in Lindert’s practice explores the affective impact of commodified individuality as well as fractured identities and offers greater insights on the dark sides of contemporary gay life.
