tableau piège

June 29, 2020

It’s a joy of mine to gather around a table with friends and family and eat and drink and make a big old mess. I like everyone to linger at the table long after we’ve put our forks down, with half eaten eggplants and fish bones before us. I am never quick to clear plates, because I find this stage of a meal thoroughly satisfying. Swiss artist, Daniel Spoerri, has elevated the remains of a meal to a high art. His photographs, which include the dirty dinner plates, the cigarette butts and the leftover bread rolls are beautifully messy, textured and real. And who doesn’t love dunking bread in olive oil long after the pavlova has been served?
