‘Je Parle’ is an internalized discussion between an identified self that sits unmistakably outside the supported hilltops of an able majority and the voice that silences a plea for recognition and existence. Can your actions be congruent with your desires if you are situated in a formless space or perhaps more literally a society that fails to acknowledge your own borders and therefore the space you seek to inhabit? We uncover a dialogue both wished for and feared which in itself amounts to the crux of the matter: in living through the development and identification of the self, we must be feel as both the subject and the object; an authentic self is then both created and discovered and can only do so in the throes of a relational entanglement. The speaking hands are recognized by the gaze of another. To be me, I need you.
