Internationally acclaimed artist, Kathleen Fox discusses her multimedia installation The Spaces of the Unconscious currently showing at the Freud Museum London. Her practice is situates within the critical context of Surrealism, a movement grounded in creative response to Freud's psychoanalytical discourse. The exhibition is centred in a collection of mounted boxes that use light, sound and texture to introduce themes of eroticism and death that underpin the realm of the unconscious. The work aims to model and explore Freud's spatial concept of the conscious and unconscious mind - for which he used the metaphor of a house and its component rooms. A one day conference addressing psychoanalysis and surrealism in the digital age also runs in conjunction with the exhibition. The exhibition has been made possible by the generous support of the Henry Moore Foundation and Norwich University College of the Arts.
