Sometimes art is just art

Jane McAdam Freud will discuss Sigmund Freud and the relationship between art and psychoanalysis in a lecture this Saturday

By Noah Buchan  /  STAFF REPORTER

TT: What projects are you currently working on and in what way does this continue your past work and, perhaps, move beyond it?

JMF: I am preparing for an exhibition with “interfaith” overtones. It is called Otherside. This title refers to the process I favor which is making objects with 2.5 dimensions. That is, objects with two distinct sides. Otherside embraces all the connotations of the phrase, with its poetic and political resonances. It relates to the other side in a Freudian dualistic sense. “One side infers the other.” There is always another side to everything, another option, and another way forward. My works for this show displays traditional sculpture but through symbolic placement of the pieces and distortions of the form evoke some poetic/provocative questions.
