«Restaurant Spoerri au Jeu de Paume»

Daniel Abadie, the director of the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris, which was formerly reserved for the Impressionists, succeeded in persuading Daniel Spoerri to celebrate ten of his banquets in a huge event on several evenings as a quotation of himself and a reference to his exhibition “ Restaurant de Galerie J” of 1963.
On each of these evenings, where the Butard & Enescot Company was in charge of preparing the food, tables were also mounted. After 10 days 40 new snare-pictures were created: the actual exhibition at the Jeu de Paume.
It is hardly possible to describe in a few words which logistical problems needed to be overcome for this undertaking.
