Made during a 2014 residency at the Freud Museum, London, ‘Make a note of anything’ is a site-specific installation. Made in collaboration with pupils at Holy Trinity Primary School in Hampstead to realise the work, which was created specially for the Anna Freud Room at the Freud Museum.
A frieze in 268 parts, Von Zwehl photographed over 100 children’s eyes, which were installed in the formation of a frieze that runs unbroken around the room, just below the ceiling. The eyes are punctuated by more abstracted images; sections of blurred green foliage; glimpses beyond the room and out into the garden. The elevated height of the frieze repositions the child into the role of the observer rather than the observed, and in this way, the intense, uncompromising gaze of the children metaphorically ‘bear witness’ to what passes below them.
'Invitation to Frequent the Shadows' was a 2016 exhibition at the Freud Museum, London, which included fifty framed fragments of the same profile of a six-year old girl from a series titled 'The Sessions'; 'Safelight' a light installation created in Sigmund Freud's study; and 'Laments', an installation of light boxes on display in the dining room.
