Spoerri Daniel

To define Daniel Spoerri (Galati, 1930) two coordinates would be enough: already at the dawn of the Sixties he has been acquired by the MOMA in New York, while in 1990 the Center Pompidou in Paris dedicated him a large retrospective. However, Spoerri remains a difficult figure to be pigeonholed: he was a dancer, a choreographer, a playwright, a restaurateur, a gallery owner, as well as the artist inventor of the Eat Art and of the famous Snare-picture.

Daniel Spoerri. Rearranging the world

From 15/10/2017 To 31/01/2018
Exhibition's curator Marco Bazzini

The eclecticism of the artistic career of Daniel Spoerri, who was born in Galati (Romania) on 27 March 1930, is reflected in his biography: he was the lead dancer of the Stadttheater in Bern between 1954 and 1957, becoming a star of dancing, a discipline in which defying gravity is an everyday necessity. Two surnames, Spoerri and Feinstein, of his mother and father respectively, appear among the signatories of the manifesto of Nouveau Réalisme – drafted by Pierre Restany in 1960 – together with those of Yves Klein, Tinguely, Raysse, Baldaccini, Villeglé, Christo, Deschamps, Rotella, Arman and Niki de Saint Phalle. Daniel Spoerri has also been a poet, memorialist, essayist, ethno-anthropologist, oenologist, gourmet and humanist. As Arturo Schwarz, his gallerist and publisher friend in Milan, recalls, his interests “are as diverse as those of seventeenth-century encyclopaedists”. Even so, he freed himself from the Dada legacy and, in particular, from the Duchampian model, precisely by concentrating on the theme of nutrition. As fundamental as eroticism but, in the artist’s view, less-well investigated, food became an emblem of Spoerri’s work, well beyond his equally famous invention of Snare-Pictures, when in 1967 he coined the term Eat Art. This was when he came back from the Greek island of Symi, where his year-long Gastronomic Diary also took shape.

In the 1970s he opened a restaurant, which became an exhibition space under the name Eat Art Gallery in Düsseldorf (Germany), as well as the setting for his many banquets. In the 1990s, he created a large sculpture park in Seggiano, Tuscany, which became a foundation in 1997. In 2009 came his Kunststaulager Spoerri in Hadersdorf am Kamp (Austria).

In 2017, in collaboration with the Boxart Gallery in Verona, in addition to a personal exhibition curated by Marco Bazzini entitled Riarranging The World, realizes a Palindromic Banquet for only 100 people as a special event for the inaugural evening.

The list of his exhibitions in recent years shows how Daniel Spoerri’s art has constantly evolved and how it continues to arouse great interest.
