A dialogue beyond words, in us, between us, ‘one towards the other’, ‘distanced by our difference but present to each other’.
is based on Luce Irigaray’s to be two (2001) from which we each selected a number of word collections translated in two languages (English and mother tongue). In this book philosopher and linguist Luce Irigaray constructs a feminist critique of how to be with an other, considering ‘desire for the other as a union that preserves two even as it takes one to be its model’.
