Appointment. Sophie Calle and Sigmund Freud

“Appointment: Sophie Calle & Sigmund Freud” is a unique assembly of Calle’s own texts and personal objects juxtaposed with objects from Sigmund Freud’s collection, still kept in the house where he lived. Featured here are fragments from the artist’s own fascinating life story; these characteristic texts reveal intimate secrets, unraveling some of her childhood memories as well as her adult relationships. Calle’s references to certain mementos and the emotionally charged events with which they are associated parallel Freud’s own psychoanalytical theories and his passion for collecting. “Appointment” is a compelling and beautifully designed follow-up to Calle’s “Double Game,” right down to the satin ribbon page marker.
5.5 x 7.5 inches, 80 color illustrations. Author Quote:
“…I was invited to create an exhibition entitled “Appointment” in the house at 20 Maresfield Gardens, London, where Dr. Freud lived, and died. After having a vision of my wedding dress laid across Freud’s couch, I immediately accepted. I chose to display relics of my own life amongst the interior of Sigmund’s home.” -Sophie Calle
