Daniel Spoerri is a Swiss artist and writer born in Romania. Spoerri is best known for his ‘snare-pictures’, a type of assemblage or object art, in which he captures a group of objects, such as the remains of meals eaten by individuals, including the plates, silverware and glasses, all of which are fixed to the table or board, which is then displayed on a wall. In 1960, Spoerri made his first snare-picture. Spoerri later explained snare-pictures as follows: “Objects found in chance positions, in order or disorder (on tables, in boxes, drawers, etc.) are fixed (‘snared’) as they are. Only the plane is changed: since the result is called a picture, what was horizontal becomes vertical. Example: remains of a meal are fixed to the table at which the meal was consumed and the table hung on the wall.”
