Pondering the empty bed shared by Colette and her lover, Connolly takes us through a tour of emptiness (including Mallarmé’s obsession with the blank page, Ying Chen’s novel Ingratitude and Kay Pollak’s film As it is in Heaven). With the work of Edouard Glissantis at hand, Connolly looks at opaqueness as both the necessary outcome of diversity in a globalized world and the form of the blank space of creation.
