Temporarily Accessioned: Freud’s Coat Revisited

This exhibition is an opportunity to present new work by the artist, twenty years after first exhibiting at the museum in a show entitled Freud’s Coat. Coldwell’s work focuses on the forced exile of Freud from Vienna in 1938 to settle in London for the last year of his life. The work he has made includes a full size print from x-rays of the coat that Freud purchased to travel to London, entitled Temporarily Accessioned-X-Ray (2016), and a reconstruction of the objects on Freud’s desk, 3D scanned and printed in pure white nylon, A Ghostly Return (2016). Together the work addresses the themes of absence and presence, of objects and loss, and touches on what it means to have to flee one’s home and become a migrant.
