Since the early 1990s, Californian artist Mike Bouchet has been questioning social processes and structures in his work in a variety of forms including paintings, sculptures, installations, actions, performances and videos.

His practice focuses on issues such as consumerism and the construction of systems of values, while always reflecting on his role as an artist, therefore creating a new profile the « artiist – entrepreneur « .

Born in Castro Valley, California in 1970, Mike Bouchet is one of the most promising Californian artists from his generation. From 1990 to 1993, he studied at Calarts with Paul McCarthy and Richard Jackson. His work has recently gained a dramatic exposure, with « Watershed  » (2009) the spectacular installation realized for the 53rd Biennale di Venezia. Recently he had also shows at the Frankfurt Schirn Kunsthalle and at the Vienna Bawag Foundation.
