American artist, writer, musician and actor Lydia Lunch talks to TateShots about the intersection of music and art. Part of the Sound & Vision series



New York-born Lydia Lunch is a singer, poet, writer, actor, visual artist, and the fourth subject of our Sound & Vision series. From signaling the end of Punk with her first band, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, to presenting art installations as a reaction to Tracey Emin - “I want you to smell the blood on the sheets…” - Lunch’s work is provocative to say the least. In this film, featuring excerpts from her live performances, she talks about how Goya and Marcel Duchamp are amongst her favourite artists.
