"I am not what I am, my name is a « nom de guerre », a built identity of existence, an identity which is no longer in affiliation with a compulsory social or family relationship. Building one’s own name is building ourself, our own gender, our own character, our own truth, it is to shape our own self, to return to our own independence and to determine our own form of life. Our self, as a condition of our own reality. I'm the surrogate mother of my own self, devourer of my nights in the gaping hole of an injured destiny. I am a man in the uncertainty of the day, looking for sounds of heat as locked memories."
