Artist's Talk - Christie Brown

Join Christie Brown for a tour of her exhibition 'DreamWork'.

Artist and ceramicist Christie Brown responds to the Freud Museum in two key ways. Firstly, Brown is intrigued by the significance and nature of Freud’s large collection of figurative antique artefacts. Her second focus is on the idea that since human beings project a range of emotions onto objects, these objects have a life of their own. Drawing parallels between falling asleep and leaving the museum or studio, she suggests that inanimate objects may become animated in ways that are beyond our control, like dreams.
