Analysing Freud
70 x 90 cm
hot wax on photography


The photo shows Sigmund Freud's head as the door handle of a room door in a 4* hotel. This deliberate metaphor of the hotel operator, intended as a suggestion about what is happening behind the door, is turned around by the artist and used as an impulse to reflect on Freud himself. The head appears old and worn and on closer inspection, the words "sex", "mum" and "penis" can be read. "Analysing Freud" is the playful and colourful message to one's ego: "This is just a door! Just open it!"
