Cold Cuts, ALASKA Projects, Kings Cross, 4–26 August 2017
Cold Cuts considers psychoanalysis as a practice, set of assumptions, and interior space. Thinking about how analysis regulates the body – as it sits in a room, as it answers questions, as it returns to re-staged scenes of primary trauma or ecstasy – the show asks what kind of discipline therapy is, especially when the terms of analysis are unclear, obscured, or altered. Analysis is considered not just as ‘therapy’ but as part of a larger, vaguer, more generalised culture of anxiety that both produces and seeks to fix its terrors.
