A figure by Daniel Spoerri awaits visitors outside the restaurant. She’s called »The Bersagliera«, that is, she’s a sharpshooter, but her stance is reminiscent of the female figure in the »Courting Couple« (No.31). The swing of her hips give her more of a coquettish character than a baleful one. On closer inspection, you’ll also discover that she has received more shots than she has meted out: her body shows evidence of numerous circular injuries. The figure’s facial expression, a collage of remnants from a foundry, is in fact on the cheerful side. If you ask the artist, he thinks she’s probably quite happy at that moment to be penetrated by a sizeable phallus.
