The trace function of death and nothing.
The cadaverous presence establishes a relation between here and nowhere.
- Maurice Blanchot
The Phantome disturbs by its just out of reach presence.
- Bruce Witsiepe
...In Ceci Níest Pas, the train, that ubiquitous symbol of sex, death, and cinema itself draws us away from the fantasy of a presence in this world and towards the phantasms beyond. The destination of this unseen train can only be the invisible realm of nowhere.
