From gestures of withdrawal to the restless reworking of togetherness, a type of imaginary takes hold: the thing which supports and drives thought, and the body, this one that stands up for the other – the emptiness, the broken windows, the vibrations, which they capture, they become. It leads to forms and figures of experimentation, for and with and around others. This is what he begins to think and to sense (with the pirate band playing in the cellar... the spiders in the corners...). And which later emerges as materials, constructs, gatherings, stitched together – the vitality of the incomplete that allows for states of permeability, assemblage, a listening from below: to be always already undone, on the way, and which may enable the work of generosity, the crafting of these fragile stories, the persistent act of ordinary justice.
