Xavier Gassmann, Céline Masson : one step in play. playing on the step : dreaming/creating

Faced with issues of changes associated with adolescence, the adolescent subject is in the throes of what, in the object-relation, comes from a necessary loss. When separation as a process is not dialectizable, it keeps the subject in a position of submission, locking him within an enclosure. To open up a space for creativity where such lock-down has occurred is the aim of workshops conducted by artists in a day-hospital. Supports ensured by the artist carry out a « portage », understood as holding and handling, in the sense that the artist establishes an encounter using subject matter that he carries psychically and is receptive to the lines and sketches of the adolescent’s formations.
