    Abstract

    This article explores the nature of artistic and psychoanalytic encounters that promote a kind of endurance. What is meant here is that such encounters slow time down, reminding us that there is something important about stillness, about remaining with a situation until it organises itself under the pressure of its own desire. The pleasure and pain of endurance is examined with particular reference to the artistic practice of Marina Abramović and the chaotic situation of Jacques Lacan’s waiting room.
