On the day of the opening of his first exhibition in Paris, Man Ray bought a flatiron, carpet tacks and glue. In the gallery he stuck a single line of the nails on the sole plate of the iron, and added the new work to the exhibition under the title ‘Cadeau’. It was his first Dada object in France. He planned to raffle it among his friends, but it disappeared from the exhibition that same afternoon.
