RENATE FERRO

 

Mining Memory: The CabinetThis installation contains fourteen drawers each labeled with a Freudian construct .   Within each drawer is an assemblage of miniature objects that relate to the construct.  On the top of the cabinet a two-channel video is displayed on miniature LCD screens that screen human hands opening certain drawers then manipulating the objects.  Texts about Freud are revealed on the interior drawer separations.   An audio segment plays on a CD player heard by the viewer when earphones are worn recounting a list of objects contained within the cabinet drawers.
