The empty space. Reflections on the function of the emptiness in the psychoanalytic cure and art. This study aims at discussing and situating the role of the emptiness in the work of art, from the theorization of Melanie Klein and Lacan. Confronting Klein's position in relation to the process of creation - extracted from the analysis of two literary fragments - with the theorization of the object as proposed by Lacan in the years 1959-60, our proposal is to distinguish the symbolization inherent to art. We understand that this process enables the passage of disorganization suggested by the presence of the "hole" (ontogenic absence) - clinically manifested by anguish - to its metaphorization as absence through which emptiness is inscribed, settled in its creative portion.
