A shout that has no beginning or end, one that echoes endlessly over a constantly visible scar. The scar belongs to a body that has been struck, punctuated by a violence that is ongoing. The flesh has been breached; the cry will not abate. / Un cri qui n’a pas de naissance ni de fin, un cri infini sur une cicatrice qui semble toujours visible: celle d’un corps heurté, rythmé par une violence qui dure, celle d’une chair pénétrée et qui ne se tait plus.
