Éric Bidaud: the adolescent: a time of “burial”…

This article will show what is at stake in the case of an adolescent who confines himself and methodically constructs a place of voluntary reclusion, the place of an asceticism, to the point of becoming a figure of burial on the verge of in-terment anxiety. The text will attempt to provide not so much the description of an ascetic arc – its deprivations, seclusion, and attacks on the body – as of the place where it happens, the place of the asceticism, where the family home is undone and covered up by a new space.
