Synopsis:

Vera Mercer joined the artistic avant-garde in Paris of the early 1960s; she did portraits of Daniel Spoerri, Marcel Duchamp, Niki de Saint Phalle, and many other artists.

The catalog combines these portraits with her early records of the Paris market halls, and, above all, her recent exuberant still lifes. She creates a magnificently baroque ambiance, meticulously arranging meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables in soft candlelight and classic composing. Mercer was born 1936 in Berlin, Germany, and today lives in Omaha and Paris.

Matthias Harder is chief curator at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, Germany.

About the Author: Matthias Harder is an art historian who worked for several cultural institutions. He is the author of numerous publications on photography and contemporary art. Currently he is chief curator at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, Germany.

The photographic work of Vera Mercer has remained relatively unknown until now. Born in 1936 in Berlin as Vera Mertz, she received Swiss citizenship following her marriage in 1958 to Daniel Spoerri. In the same year, the couple moved to Paris, where they became part of an artistic avant-garde that would become known as the Nouveaux Réalistes. In the following years, Vera Mercer, who was trained in modern dance and a self-taught photographer, portrayed visual artists such as Marcel Duchamp and Robert Filliou, Niki de Saint-Phalle and Jean Tinguely as well as Daniel Spoerri time and again. Mercer also photographed on her own initiative sites such as the historic central marketplace in Paris, shortly before its demolition. Here in Les Halles Mercer is directly confronted by a theme that would literally take center stage in her work, even decades later. She photographs food - fruit and vegetables, meat and fish - assembled and arranged at her home studio, and sometimes even cooked in her own kitchen.
