• On reflection

Pacteau, Francette, 2012, Conference or Workshop, On reflection at The Shadow of Language, Royal College of Art, 21-22 Nov 2012.

Abstract or Description:

A musing on the experience of living in a foreign language in a country that is not one's own. The play of possession of, and dispossession by, the other tongue imagined as a reflexibility of illumination and obscurity: each language casts its changing shadow on the other, and is shadowed by the other as if by an irksome dopplegänger.
