Making Love to My Ego

11/08/2006

‘Every normal person, in fact, is only normal on the average: His ego approximates to that of the psychotic in some part or other and to a greater or lesser extent.’ Freud

With a nod to popular psychoanalysis and a keen desire to explore the manifestations of the ego within contemporary art practice, Manchester based artist-curators Another Product have brought together a group of artists to generate an inquiry into the subject.
