Camille Smithwick’s I Dream of Gottfried explores the dreams of Kaspar Hauser. The mysterious Kaspar Hauser was a teenage foundling who appeared, seemingly from nowhere, in Nuremberg in 1828. Speaking only one sentence in an unfamiliar dialect, unable to walk properly and eventually murdered, rumours abound about his true origin. The sculptures are symbolic interpretations of this dream life; an attempt to channel our experience of the unconscious that defies language.
