Silence

The word silence is still a sound…Silence is a word which is not a word

Georges Bataille

Silence is paradoxical; to talk about it is to negate it but to remain silent is to deny it. That which is beyond and before, inside and outside language, the center and the limit of language, and what language cannot reach except by disappearing. An impossible interval inscribed at the heart of language, appearing only when language disappears to disappear again since it is nothing but a word in a language disappearing to let the absence of words become a word which is not a word.
