(Français) Chair(s), Jean-Marc Fillet


“2 chairs face to face
Waiting for the Other
That he sits
The encounter
The instant
Given by the Other
The exchange
Trusting the Other
The connection or not
To where one can lead
The relationship
Proceeding from seduction
Making a dance
To emotion
Impulse, répulsion
Can arise
A story
The story
Of Time
Two of us
Waiting for the other
The passage
The trick
The intimates
The Other”
