Essay by Sigmund Freud read from off-screen, in which the famous psychoanalyst describes the phenomenon of forgetting and compulsive replacement in memory of proper names by other names, provides Polska with an opportunity to analyse the way memory functions in art.
Like Freud, Polska draws attention to that what is forgotten or wrongly remembered and recurs subconsciously in a changed, ambiguous form. Freud’s narration is illustrated by works of art (Three L-Beams by Robert Morris from 1965, among others), which construct the image of art historical subconsciousness.
