After exhibition in Hotel Atlantis we placed the tail fin in the public space again. A few days later, when the Captain has wanted to store the tail fin, the installation wasn't there.

The police has ordered to remove and burn the tail fin without trying to get in contact with Bury the Jumbo first. You can read the police's e-mail conversation. Without going into details too much: the Captain is freaking out.

We are surprised. Our URL: www.burythejumbo.com was clearly visible on both sides of the tail fin. The contact details are in the left hand navigation on our web site. If somebody want to get in contact with BTJ you don't have to be sherlock holmes.

The Law of Switzerland protects our property. For example if you are parking in a no parking area the police is not allowed to burn your car. In our opinion the act of art demolition was illegal.

How do you want to proceed?

  • to press criminal charges against the City of Zurich and try to get $ 1'000'000 (this may take us just 3 years...)
  • firstly to engage the police in conversation and secondly to ask if they kindly help us to build up a new tail fin (their work will definitely be conform to the road traffic act)

Just for your information - 7 years ago Bury placed an official garbage bag (Züri-Sack) on the street. A half-day before he was allowed to place it. He just didn't think about the official waste removal time table. The police was researching and found a letter with the adress of Bury in the garbage bag - "igittigitt" (engl. = disgusting). Finally Bury had to pay a penalty of CHF 250.- and got a complaint.

What we want to say is that they CAN find you if they WANT to find you.¨
