Primal Cord

Freud Museum, Totemic festival, on the 100th anniversary of the publication of Totem and Taboo.
London, 2013

I wove a cord from my waist to the totem tree in the Freud Museum's garden, as I wove more I got closer to the tree. During this process strange things happened. I became invisible, I received hostility by those questioning what I was doing. When I could weave no more I unraveled the cord and walked away from the tree until it tore, then I went to Anna Freud's room.
