Locks Gallery artist Jane Irish is included in (B19), a group show at Long Island University's Humanities Gallery.
(B19) is organized by Romanov Grave members Matt Freedman and Laurence Hegarty. The exhibition takes its title from Berggasse 19, the address of Freudís original Vienna psychoanalytical office.
The curators have invited 19 artists to produce work in response to the artifacts, objects or histories found in Freudís office and memorably photographed by Edmund Engelman days before Freud fled Nazi occupied Austria. The artistsí responses are based upon their knowledge or experience of the history and practice of psychoanalysis. Using a variety of media artists have riffed upon iconic features ranging from Freudís couch to the print of Charcot that hung above said couch. Fragments of the architecture, pieces of Freudís antiquities collection, even the urn in which Freudís ashes now repose have found their way to Long Island Universityís Humanities Gallery. The show opens on Sunday May 6th, Freudís 156th birthday.
