In 1997 magician/psychic, Uri Geller tried to help Second Division football club Exeter City win a crucial end of season game by placing “energy-infused” crystals behind the goals at Exeter’s ground (Exeter lost the game 5–1).

Both the convex and concave complexity of the bent spoon is explored as a reflection of the duplicitous ambiguity of Geller; the fine line between artist and conman in a post-truth world.
