Abstract

The Freud Museum presented Les paris sont ouverts, a group exhibition bringing together seven international artists. All the artists explore sexuality and desire, inclusion and exclusion, repression and trauma in a way that challenges normative thinking and proposes alternative modes of thinking about the self and ‘the other’. The title can be literally translated as ‘the bets are open’, while a looser translation suggests that ‘everything is possible, anything can happen’. The exhibition addresses the idea of openness and possibility in gender and sexuality. Curated by Caroline May, the artists were: Dimitris Dokatzis,Maria Finn Eve Fowler, Sharon Kivland, Linder, Jeff Ono, and Paul P. Kivland exhibited a new work, Mon fils, for which she paid her son an enormous amount of money to fill old school exercises books with handwritten lines (as though it were a cruel punishment), which are the indexical references to mother/son relations in Freud's work, Her son comments that not only was this unhealthy, but it was also badly paid.
