Performance, presentation and discussion


Join us this evening for a special performance and presentation by Leif Elggren, followed by a discussion between the artist and curator Lucia Farinati, chaired by Freud Museum curator, Honor Beddard. Freud's iconic psychoanalytic couch; an object which besides being a museological symbol that epitomizes the life and work of the father of psychoanalysis, is also a poignant listening device for recording the unheard and the unseen. Using the microphone as a kind of third ear, Elggren's recording under the couch brings to the forefront the potential to understand musical listening almost like a psychoanalytic treatment. 20 Maresfield Gardens London NW3 5SX Tel: +44 (0)20 7435 2002
