The Entangled Seamstress, 1997
marble, bronze; 126 cm x 40 cm x 80 cm

ROLAND TOPOR
Born in Paris in 1938 where he also died in 1997. Topor is associated with satiric drawings and his black humour but he was multi-talented and also could be seen as an actor. Some might remember him as the fly-eating secretary in Werner Herzog´s version of “Nosferatu”.
“The Entangled Seamstress” at the “Giardino” is an homage by Daniel Spoerri to his intimate friend after his death. The sculpture has been made from a drawing by Topor.
