Two rock-looking speakers broadcast a speculative dialogue between Clarice Lispector and Pascale Ogier. Personified by the voice of Eva Y. Michaelson, the dialogue is built with written words from the writer and spoken words from the actress. It addresses the entanglement of human and inhuman life, deep time and becoming-ghost.
I am your talisman. I am a woman object and my aura is vibrant. I am an object that sees other objects.

I don’t remember if it was me
I am not even sure I even believe in what happened to me.
Maybe I’ll tell you what really happened. If I learn to trust you.

Je voudrais vous demander une chose, est-ce que vous croyez aux fantômes ? (...)

Things had gone back to what they were Once there was a man who walked, walked and walked and stopped and drank cold water from a spring. Then he sat on a rock and rested his staff. That man was I.
I like juxtapositions
the inhuman part is the best part of us, it’s the thing, the thing part of us. we shall be inhuman being is being beyond human
