Daniel Spoerri: Eaten by Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Daniel Spoerri was a co-signatory of the Nouveau Realisme manifesto in 1960, an early member of Fluxus and the author of the classic Anecdoted Topography of Chance, which recorded and annotated the contents of Spoerri's desk. In 1968 Spoerri also opened Restaurant Spoerri, introducing his concept of Eat Art, which he had initiated a decade earlier, and which explored the creation, decay and trapping of food upon tables that were then recapitulated as assemblages. Marking the occasion of the artist's eightieth birthday, Daniel Spoerri: Eaten By approaches the theme of food throughout Spoerri's oeuvre, from the early 1960s to the present. It includes the artist's replica of the Restaurant Spoerri, a survey of Spoerri's trap pictures from 1978 to 1992, and a large number of more recent assemblages and sculptures, bringing his audience fully up to date.
