One year ago, filmmaker Nick Zedd passed away. He left behind him a legacy of transgressive film, painting, and writing that is still being misunderstood. We were proud to present his first solo show in Paris with him in 2020 and to host what would become his final public conversation with writer Marie Canet, which we later published in our ‘A conversation’ book series.
To commemorate the anniversary of his passing, we are screening his first feature film ‘They Eat Scum’ (1979) on March 18th in the space and will have copies of the publication available for sale.
