Zurich Load Drawings

The Zurich Load drawings are part of Mike Bouchet’s work for Manifesta 11 (2016), where he presented an 80 ton sculpture made of human sludge in the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art. The concept for Manifesta 11, “What People Do For Money”, hosted by the city of Zürich, was based on pairing an artist with a particular profession. Mike Bouchet had chosen to work with the city’s waste water treatment facility.
