In February 1998, I was invited to create an exhibition entitled Appointment at a house at 20 Maresfield Gardens, London, where Dr Freud lived and died. After having a vision of my wedding dress laid across Freud´s couch, I immediately accepted. I chose to display relics of my own life amongst the interior of Sigmund´s home´ - Sophie Calle.
A unique and beautifully produced assembly of Calle´s own texts and personal objects juxtaposed with objects from Sigmund Freud´s personal collection, still kept in his Hampstead house, Appointment features fragments from the artist´s own fascinating life story, characteristic texts that reveal intimate secrets and unravel some of Calle´s childhood memories as well as her adult relationships.
Calle´s references to certain mementoes and the emotionally charged events with which they are associated have many parallels to Freud´s own psychoanalytic theories and his passion for collecting.
