Patricia O‘Donnell: “Of Flies and Spiders - Gradiva and Louise Bourgeois”.
42:57In this episode we come back to deal with Psychoanalysis and Art, through the work of Louise Bourgeois and a small novel very dear to psychoanalysis: "The Gradiva (a Pompeian fantasy)”, written by W. Jensen in 1903. Patricia O'Donnell presents her paper titled: “Of flies and spiders - Gradiva and Louise Bourgeois" and reports that a particular comment inside the book plus the added role of flies with their multiple meanings in the novel were the triggers for thinking about the French artist. "Maman", for instance, the gigantic sculpture of a spider in steel and marble, is the paradigm of a theme repeatedly evoked in the writings and works of the artist, who gave these attractive and fearsome creatures a variety of interpretations. This presentation, which explores and interweaves some biographical information, such as her mourning, the discovery of the difference between the sexes, her writings, her sculpture "Arch of Hysteria”, is an attempt to give us a glimpse into an artistic universe, which expands like a spider's web. The research into how she constructed the phantasmagoria around the spider constituted a psychoanalytical aesthetic experience with a body of work that invokes a past that travels through time in the face of an unknown future. Perhaps the spider as an apotropaic and talismanic figure is a defence against the fantasies of death and vulnerability that are so poignant in today's world.

Florence Guignard - The Infantile in Psychoanalytic Practice Today.
37:36One day, in 1996, with a leap from adjective to noun, a new concept arose within psychoanalytic thought: the Infantile. This term remained so pertinent over time that it has become the core of the title of the 52nd IPA Congress. Florence Guignard was the author who first formulated it in such an accomplished form, and in today's episode she draws important clinical consequences from the theoretical reflection on this concept concerning the analytic relationship and the interpretative activity of the psychoanalyst in their daily work. The Infantile -with a capital “I”- is a limit-concept, which aims at describing a "flexible" structure, at the limits of our animality, at the borders of our Unconscious and our Preconscious system. Being the first and main means of organization of our Ego drives, the Infantile is also the place of our primary fantasies and of the mnemonic traces of our first sensory-motor experiences. It is the most acute point of our emotions and feelings in their non-verbal state. Florence Guignard describes how the patient’s Infantile and the analyst’s Infantile are interweaving in the transference-countertransference situation, as beautifully illustrated by Mikael Vilchez artistic creation, enriched by Rhoda Bawdekar’s interpretation of it. Florence Guignard shows us how the Infantile can serve as a lever in the case of blind spots and stopper interpretations. A clinical example of a blind spot in the analyst will be published in the second volume of “Psychoanalytic Concepts and Technique in Development. The psychoanalyst in the city”. Florence Guignard is a Swiss and French psychoanalyst, Training analyst of the Paris Society and a direct member of the IPA for the Training in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis. She co-founded the European Society for Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis. She is an internationally renowned author and since 1970 her work, translated into several languages, notably on female sexuality and the child, has contrìbuted significantly to the renewal of psychoanalytical thought. link to the paper https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UC1QF8Yirl8CZ5i42rWwTxvD5_qfwc5B/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=112457875385152358388&rtpof=true&sd=true This episode is available also in French Credits © Forbidden Denimeries by Mikael Vilchez, 2021 Visual editing and design, Rhoda Bawdekar Music, Chopin Ballade no. 4, Op. 52

34:17Interpretation of Dreams, by Rod Moss Craig San Roque, community psychologist and psychotherapist has, for the past 30 years lived in Central Australia working within indigenous Australian circumstances. He has written many careful accounts of the existential realities of intercultural collaborations and tensions.

The Passion, by Rod Moss References to the Uti Kulintjaku projects, including evaluations by Samantha Togni may be found through the NPY Women’s Council website - npywc.org.au - see section on Ngangkari-traditional healers and Uti Kulintjaku project.

Laura Colombi - The Dangerous Call Of The Wild. Clinical Considerations About Dissociation Into Fantasy.

The 52nd IPA Congress will be held online from July 21st to August 1st, and by visiting our program you can set your schedule to suit your personal time zone. In this episode we’ll listen to Laura Colombi talking about the paper titled: “The dangerous call of the wild. Clinical considerations about dissociation into fantasy”. Here she discusses how fantasizing, understood as a flight into fantasy, belongs to a type of mental functioning as opposed to that of imaginative fantasy. The Author follows Winnicott’s idea that withdrawal into fantasy can take on a dissociative quality, which is structured early on as a defensive solution following the loss of hope in object relations. Such defence becomes the foundation for a dangerous enclave in which the subject ends up enclosing himself, experiencing an illusory self-sufficiency which is nourished with omnipotence and sensory pleasure. From this perspective, the Author suggests that the withdrawal into fantasy must be understood as a risky factor of emptying the Self or of a crystallization into psychopathological structures. This way, it could become an automatic activity of ‘non-thought’ that replaces the working-through processes necessary for the development of the mind. Clinical material, omitted in the podcast, of both children and adults will illustrate how the flight into fantasy, over time, may take the form of an anti-relational realm of the mind, compromising the operations necessary for the integration of psychic life. Laura Colombi is Training Analyst of the Italian Psychoanalytical Society and Analyst for Children and Adolescents. She has been working on the educational and theoretical levels on disorders related to the pathology of primitive psychological organization and weaves together interests from the clinic of children and adult patients with severe psychopathology and identity disorders. On the topic of 'dissociation into fantasy' she has published in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and in the Italian Psychoanalytic Journal.
