Touch Me captures scenes in dance courses, amusement parks and cruise ships in Sweden. In all these places people gather to dance to “dansbandsmusik” (Swedish for dance band music). 


Daniel Spoerri

Waschbretter, Waschrumpeln, Waschrubbeln, Wash Board
Daniel Spoerri first became famous for his “snare pictures”, made by attaching – “snaring” – objects found at random to whatever they happened to be lying on at the time. This gave rise to wall-mounted “pictures” of set tables and the contents of drawers.
A master of the art of assemblage, Spoerri has always been fascinated by collecting. In his new series presented here, old wash boards are made to serve as a ground for all sorts of found objects and collectibles. The bones, teeth, feathers and parts of dolls and figures at first arouse our deepest, most instinctive fears, yet the tongue-in-cheek tales that Spoerri tells with them provide a second level of appreciation: that of comic relief.
