    About The Work

    Untitled : After a Dialogue Between a Priest and a Dying Man is a Fundraising Edition by Paul Chan. Chan’s wooden-handled knife is modeled after the one brandished by the young Caravaggio in Derek Jarman’s 1986 film of the same name, dramatizing the torrid and scandalous life of the 16th century painter. Each knife is engraved with the text “Nee Spe Nee Metu” meaning “No Hope No Fear” and comes wrapped in canvas with a signed letterpress title card.
