Snare-picture : 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.
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. He was one of the original signers of the manifesto creating the Nouveau réalisme (New Realism) art movement.
