Signed and numbered by hand, on the back, Daniel Spoerri, 1/50
Spoerri called his relief works tableaux-pièges (picture-traps), because they involved fixing or 'snaring' objects found in by-chance positions on table tops or in drawers. These were hung vertically on a wall, like conventional pictures, and were intended to create visual discomfort in the viewer.
In this work, the main piece is a white rose lost between all the meal remains. A glow of purity and light lost in the chaos of the contemporary society.
