The Body Ophelia Installation


The Body Ophelia explores the uncharted territory of one of Shakepeares’ most enigmatic characters, mapping the psyche and explorations of Ophelia off the stage, the time and space between her silence and her madness. The piece also explores the case studies of Sigmund Freud and Joseph Breuer from their landmark 'Cases in Hysteria', published in 1893 and seen as crucial in the understanding of the subconscious in the 20th century.
