It was in a small confined studio, situated off the courtyard of her Parisian apartment, where Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger was working at the time when I first met her. I was just 22 years old then, and was astounded by the fact that one could successfully manage the life of an artist and a psychoanalyst's practice. I was also impressed by the enormous range of her current work including the translation of texts by Jacques Lacan from French to Hebrew. In Paris at the end of the 1980s, her work could have only appeared as a meteorite; there was no trend whatsoever with which to associate it. It was, without a doubt, that aesthetic singularity that attracted me thus to her work. The following year, in 1988, the artist called on me to write for the catalogue of her exhibition at the Musée de Calais.
