Harasymowicz’s solo show combined an installation of silkscreen prints and drawings, including images from the then recently published graphic novel ‘The Wolf Man’, alongside items from the Freud Museum collection. These items collectively document Freud’s attempts to unravel the source of the Russian aristocrat, Sergei Pankejeff’s, crippling neurosis. The exhibition revealed Harasymowicz’s own working methods, exploring ideas around repetition, collation and the reworking of images. Set in the house of Sigmund Freud, the works and their groupings were suggestive of the ambiguity of communication, multiple loose sheets of drawings are pulled together, offering different comprehensions of analytical processes, proposing implications of repetition.
A limited-edition pamphlet, with an introduction by Deborah Levy, was produced to accompany the exhibition.
