For the 1975 Paris Biennale, Matta-Clark made a major cut in two houses adjacent to the Georges Pompidou Center in Les Halles. The cut, shaped like a twisted cone, was inspired by Anthony McCall's film Line Describing a Cone. Join Smigiel for a screening and discussion of two films related to this project: Conical Intersect (1975, 18 min.) by Matta-Clark and Gordon Matta-Clark's Conical Intersect (1975 - 2006, 17 min.) by photographer and videographer Marc Petitjean.
