Art and psychoanalysis are practices of the impossible on the path of initiation to the mystery, the beyond discourse. Their search is for a pure language, ideally coinciding with the Thing itself; not a familiar reflection of ourselves but a going towards the most foreign and intimate lnd. And reaching it […] is impossible.
