I created Frieda S. for the judged theme exhibition BELLE EPOQUE fall 2006.
The piece of jewelry had to fit an oval of 7x5cm and integrate a minimum of one diamond.
Frieda S. is the realization of my research on the social role of women during the belle époque. From corsets to female hysteria and penis envy I naturally stumble across Sigmund Freud.
The quotes on the necklace are from Frieda S. therapy sittings with Sigmund F.
Although the patient Frieda S. comes at a price, it is a pittance compared to her inner value and the cost of a serious psychotherapy with a good analyst.
The creation Frieda S. was awarded the special price of the jury.
Frieda S.: My innermost is brilliant!
Overheard quotes from the therapy sittings with Sigmund F.:
-Sometimes my jewel case is also a cigar box…
-Well, at least my unconscious mind is much more moral than you think!
-I always say shitty woman instead of witty showman.
-Oh Doctor, I think the couch is on fire!
-Well, what do you mean by “hysterical”? I simply don’t have much else to laugh about.
-My innermost is brilliant!
-Did you say something?
