Abstract : Looking at anorexia nervosa in adult women through the concept of trace has brought me on the sinuous paths that lead from the experience of sensitive matter towards the use of the world. My clinical observations in a hospital environment echoed with my reflections on a multifaceted and equivocal idea. Through and by this dialogue, I sought to discover what hindered anorexic women in their vitality, and tried to untangle their complexity. My attempt to weave a frame from arts to philosophy, from psychology to psychiatry, then from psychanalysis to psychomotricity, is documented by my training in both arts and psychomotricity. The result of my work is an invitation to circulate around the meanderings of existence and through the tortuosity of memory, skipping between associated ideas, memories... and traces.
