For several years Ziegler’s work has been characterized by an investigation into the ways that images and objects accumulate and shed narratives, and Freud’s collection of antiquities epitomises this. Freud collected artefacts - statues of Egyptian, Greek and Roman gods, fertility symbols and phalloi – which can be seen as symbols of specific human drives, but also gradually became familiar ornaments, absorbed into their environment; for his patients they may have had completely different associations again, sometimes functioning as triggers in their analysis. The works in this exhibition, though in situ for only a short time, imagine themselves as comparable to this process of absorption.
