Recorded in the Nysts’ living-room during a rainy day, this video marks the introduction of colour (in this case green) in the previously black and white universe of the Nysts’ videos. 'La mort d’une poule' shows a top hat held in the air thanks to the help of a stick. The sound of a hen coming from inside it will be abruptly interrupted when the stick falls down and the hat dramatically drops on the table.
