Don’t say anything

In this one-to-one durational work, I returned to Frau Emmy von N. the words Sigmund Freud wrote in his famous case history about her. I told people who sat opposite me you her story of hysteria in the first person, just as Emmy would have told it to Freud in 1889.

The work was shown for the Glasgow Open House festival, 2-4 May 2015, as part of the exhibition ‘This House Has Been Far Out at Sea’ at the Laurieston Arches.

I made a one page publication for Cristina Garriga’s My Bookcase

The work looked at storytelling from a wide variety of perspectives, sound, objects, participation, history, geography and adolescence.
