Dispelling stuffiness at the Freud Museum

Whoever decided to introduce to the Freud Museum, London small exhibitions of contemporary art must have known well the incredible effect that these works would have. The Museum with its thick velvet curtains, heavy odour of old books and dust collecting artefacts is the perfect backdrop for the current exhibition of the work of Damian Ortega http://freud.org.uk/exhibitions/ His fascinating works,rather oddly connected to each other, set up little dialogues with all the bits and pieces which make up the Freud house. The apparent randomness of Ortega’s works, both their beauty and their strangeness begin to dispel the stuffiness and make one look afresh at some of these more familiar things. For that reason alone it is well worth the trek!
