Sources Of The Self The Making Of The Modern Identity PDF

AMERICANA: Sources of the Self ​
​This gallery contains artworks from the collection that address traditions involving the unconscious, myth, and ritual as tools for self-definition and identity formation. Several works reference “automatic writing,” gestural drawing techniques pursued by the Surrealists during the early part of the twentieth century. Inspired by the research of Sigmund Freud (1865-1935) and his theories of the unconscious mind, these drawing practices sought to simulate a state close to that of dreams or trance, in order to access otherwise hidden or repressed aspects of the self through the production of forms uninfluenced by reason and the aesthetics of Western culture. Other works reference ancient European, African and South American power symbols related to life, death, sexuality, and reproduction. These symbols are used to push abstraction in diverse and enigmatic directions. In several works they also form part of feminist critiques of traditionally male-dominated histories and modes of expression.
