Dedicated to the work of the Swiss artist Daniel Spoerri (1930) in relation to the Eat Art current which he himself founded in 1967, and with which he intended to open up a critical reflection on the fundamental principles of food, the exhibition is closely linked to the theme of EXPO Milano 2015, where among other things until 31 October the work “Meissen Porzellan Puzzle” will be on display, a work made up of 36 white porcelain tiles produced especially by Spoerri for the Swiss Pavilion.

Here, 150 works will be on show, ranging from his initial experimentation period linked to the magazine ‘Material’ (1955-1961), to his kinetic multiples, his famous tableaux-pièges, ‘snare-paintings’ made up of assemblages of everyday objects glued to supports and turned on their side – random compositions of leftover food and used tableware, ‘snared’ in resin and placed upright, like paintings, today featuring in collections from the MoMA in New York to the Pompidou Centre in Paris – right up to his sculpture works and his research in the field of graphics, not to mention a number of key archive documents.
