Bounded In a Nutshell


Playing into the karma of The Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, this site-responsive installation gave voice to wishes and resistances. Once a grand urban residence and now a training institute for psychotherapists, the nineteenth century townhouse provided a context for many works relating to the inner life of a patient in therapy. The objects and installations in specific settings weave fantasies around specific architectural details, routes of transit, imagined lecture topics, and moments of intimacy.  The individual works offer poignant, hopeful, and contradictory messages. What is meant is not necessarily what is said; what is said may not be  properly understood.
