Humble Tribute to Roland Topor























 

Roland by Sophie Bassouls, 1980



Look at me, I'm not worthy of your anger, I'm nothing but a dumb animal who can't prevent the noisy symptoms of his decay, so don't waste your time with me, don't dirty your hands by hitting me, just try to put up with the fact that I exist. I'm not asking you to like me, I know that's impossible, because I'm not likeable, but at least do me the kindness of despising me enough to ignore me. 

- Roland Topor -
from The Tenant

January 7, 1938 - April 16, 1997

French illustrator, painter, writer, filmmaker and actor
.

In 1962 Topor creates the Panic Movement (mouvement panique), 
with Alejandro Jodorowsky and Fernando Arrabal.
