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 practiced 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 constructed after a drawing by Topor.
