30 September 2016 - 20 November 2016This Breathing House
The Freud Museum is delighted to present a new exhibition by Bharti Kher, This Breathing House.
Bharti Kher’s inquiry in the realm of the domestic and its dramas finds its perfect counterpart in the Freud Museum London. Equally exploring Freud’s family life as well as his theories, Kher’s new exhibition is a dialogue with the house. Vivid and full of history, the artist calls into being the voices that echo through the house and refers to Maresfield Gardens as an organism, a “breathing entity“. Kher overlays, subverts, conserves and erases memories – of herself and of her own life, of her family and of the people who lived here. She adds traces to the house of conversations past and present that also engage with Freud’s references to the mind as a complex energy system. Kher extends the conversation to include the body.See details >>
