Sigmund's rug - To sleep to dream no more


Anne Deguelle - Curated by Yvan Poulain Sigmund's rug - To sleep to dream no more French artist Anne Deguelle has a long-standing interest in the theme of oriental rugs. This particular fascination resurfaced at the Freud Museum because of Freud's use of a highly decorative oriental rug, a Qashqa'i rug. This covers Freud's psychoanalytic couch, still found in his study today. This exhibition is inspired by and based on Freud's oriental rug collection, held at the Freud Museum. The collection includes over 20 rugs, some of which are still kept in storage. The exhibition gathers these together, presenting them as an art installation. ‘Sortir de leur réserve', in French; a play on words meaning ‘to take out of storage' and also ‘to break through somebody's reserve'.
