The Binding Folio: Among the Dreams

The prints are based on details of the six, large-scale prints exhibited as part of the installation. A combination of etching and embossing appears on the one side and a surface of silver ink on the other. Embossed bandages link the pages and become a metaphoric thread recalling wounding and the violent rituals enacted in the establishment of male identity.

Among the Dreams refers to the dream told to Sigmund Freud by one of his female patients of a father who falls asleep while the body of his dead child burns. It also refers to the dreams of the child who hovers between sleep and death.
