Women in Art (WIA) presents a talk by SHU’s Sharon Kivland in partnership with Shoreditch House on Wednesday 17 May 2017.

Artist Sharon Kivland joins WIA for a discussion on Freud on Holiday, her series of experimental travel writings that reconstruct Sigmund Freud’s trips to Europe.

Working with Freud’s published works and archives Kivland has established the routes and itineraries of four of Freud’s trips and priced together other historical traces of his thoughts and experiences during and surrounding each of those holidays. Through an uncanny blend of writings, photographs, drawings, postcards and other fragments, Kivland assembles her books using traditional genres to produce a new type of artistic performance.

Sharon Kivland is a Reader in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University.
