The Carving Complex

Becky Katz

November 12 - December 3, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, November 12

The Carving Complex is a contemporary study and personal interpretation of Freud’s theory, The Electra Complex; where young girls who admire their father, seek partners who are obvious substitutes for him. By comparing the stylized portrait of her father to those of her and her five sisters’ partners, it will be possible to see how similar or dissimilar they are to both him, and each other. The Carving Complex exhibits both the original wood blocks and each of their subsequent relief prints.
