The question of fragments is by nature one of enigmas. In the work of many contemporary writers, remains, or traces, are what guides our understanding of the world, bringing about writing and haunting the literary space. The goal of this colloquium is to question the trace, the fragment, remains, as well as the relationships that they maintain with the imaginary. What brings the artist to write, paint, film, to pursue the invisible ? Is literature itself a means of traveling through these remains ? In what way might the text be conceived of as a passageway, a trace, a vessel for something that has come to pass, or that is already past ?
