Another focus of his art practice is on modes of display especially in terms of the museum context. The wunderkammer has also been a direct influence in regards to his art work.

Biography

Ruth Hogger is an artist who works intuitively with free association through collage. Triggered by symbolic imagery, metaphors surface from the unconscious, and merge into scenes resembling dreamscapes. Her process draws from Freud’s free association, Jung’s work on active imagination, and her current MA studies in Art Therapy.
