    Dieter Roth emploie des aliments: chocolat, fromage, bananec, beurre....

    Artist Dieter Roth experimented with organic materials – including food – while working as a visiting professor at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1965. He smeared chocolate and banana on canvas, assembled piles of chocolate and butter into sculptures and sealed slices of sausage between glass with every intention of allowing them to decay and mold to see how the work would evolve.
