Special features of everyday life
Just as varied as Spoerri's work is his biography: having fled Romania for Switzerland in 1942, he subsequently made a name for himself as a dancer, director and writer. He is known around the world mainly for his object art. Spoerri, who celebrated his 90th birthday in 2020, is co-founder of Nouveau Réalisme and inventor of Eat-Art. Since about 1960, he has been causing a sensation with his snare-pictures – everyday objects are frozen in snapshots, fixed to supporting surfaces and vertically hung. In this way, situations from everyday life are given whole new interpretations.
Saturdays at Vienna's Naschmarkt
The Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien dedicates an extensive retrospective to the Viennese by choice – the passionate collector currently lives near the Naschmarkt and likes browsing at the weekly flea market. The exhibition aims at extending the view of his six decades of work spanning many genres. In addition to his collages and assemblages, also on display are bronze sculptures produced since 1970 as well as actions that were implemented in collaboration with other artists.
March 24 – June 27, 2021
