The public art installation “Vienna Therapy” in Melbourne’s St. Paul’s Court at Federation Square was open to the public March 8-12, 2017. Internationally recognized Viennese artist Nychos presented his sculpture entitled “The Dissection of Sigmund Freud”, a ten foot tall white sculpture of the father of psychoanalysis. Revealing the innermost essence. Both Freud and street artist Nychos combine psychoanalysis with art to bring the hidden to light.
Just as Freud drew inspiration from Vienna, Nychos looks to historic Viennese places with a dark past – such as the Madhouse Tower in the old Vienna General Hospital where Freud once taught. Whether walking along the Ringstrasse or relaxing at his favourite coffee house at Café Landtmann, both men are rooted to this special city and share the desire to reveal inner secrets.
