Daniel Spoerri: 5 works not to be missed
Chance readily directs the work of the Swiss object artist Daniel Spoerri. Perhaps you know his “snare pictures”? These are the firmly glued-down remains of a laid table, which is hung on the wall. Empty plates, full ashtrays, a casual chaos
Spoerri, who was born in Romania in 1930, has, amongst other things, written cookbooks, created an artists’ garden in Tuscany and made films. “It was important to me to show that he is a universal artist”, says Veronika Rudorfer. She has curated a wide-ranging exhibition about Spoerri at the Bank Austria Kunstforum in Vienna. And here she explains to you, exclusively, which five artworks you cannot afford to miss in this great show, which is also a lot of fun.
