Paperwork, Zurich

June 27th – July 5th, 2020
Zitrone Manegg
Allmendstrasse 92, 8041 Zurich

Curated by Marco Fedele di Catrano and Nathalie Diserens with Vivianne Tat

PAPERWORK begins with a first exhibition in a former construction factory in Manegg, a district of Zurich. Demolished industrial buildings, which were mainly dedicated to paper production, make room for imposing residential complexes.
A standard pallet of 6290 sheets of amber volume paper (90 g) in 1020 x 720 mm format marks the starting point of the PAPERWORK project. The path of the paper on the pallet exemplifies the transformation process from an industrial society to a digital service society, in which industrially manufactured products lose their value.
PAPERWORK is a collective term that is used grammatically in the singular, but at the same time refers to the numerous and repetitive. The word evokes several levels of meaning, it touches on bureaucracy, becomes political, emphasizes serial work in reference to the material or disappearing in the ephemeral.

An den vier Ecken eines gemeinsamen Küchentischs stehen vier Gläser unterschiedlicher Form, die bis zum Rand mit möglichst viel Wasser gefüllt sind.
Die Brille befindet sich so nahe an der Tischkante, dass eine kleine Vibration ausreicht, um sie zu Boden fallen zu lassen.
Four glasses of different shapes, filled with as much water as possible, to the brim, are placed at the four corners of a common kitchen table.
The glasses are so close to the edge of the table that a small vibration would be enough to make them fall to the ground.
