Born in Roumania Daniel Spoerri moves to Switzerland for becoming dancer before working as plastician. The MMACA retrospect takes the feeling of emotion as beginning and proposes a walk among an universe between party and cabinet of curiosity. The first step names "Pièges, farces, attrapes" show us Daniel Spoerri building a dialog with tools. At the end of the 1950's he creates low price things out of classical process he highlights at the Loeb art gallery. The Daniel Spoerri works becomes to be famous and arouses him inventing the concept of Tableau piège (Canvas trap) in the room 13 inside the Carcassonne Hotel in Paris. Canvas trap seems easy to do. Daniel Spoerri takes a piece of wood in which he sticks daily tools without following any script and put it vertically. Canvas trap catches a piece of time and transforming ordinary tools. The exhibition continues with "Restaurant, banquet, tripes et cuisine" because Daniel Spoerri thinks that lunch time plays an important part for meeting together. His diners stay very special with menus creating by art critic jokes or happening conclude by Canvas trap. The exhibition ends itself with "Musée, merveilles et mystifications" where Daniel Spoerri explains his collecting love. Iintroducing himself as an archaeologist because he finds tools full of histories and underline them like a scientist could do.
