U5 - Young Land Ever Fast_05.tif

Young Land Ever Fast

Mixed media installation, 2014

U5 developed architectural and scenic elements for this fictious suburban environment which visitors could access by car. The main work of this expansive 600 sqm installation is a full-scale bus terminal complete with a waiting area with sculptures, paintings and a bench, edged by artificial plants and water basins. The visitor, waiting for a bus that never arrives, waits in a timeless state of absurdity. The video on the display disinforms with a chaotic accumulation of instructions, advertisements, and entertainment. The installation included works by artists Maya Rochat and Francisca Silva and architect and designer Fabio Don. Together the artists produced video works set within the physical installation, including a recorded private performance and a live stream from three webcams, viewable on the U5 website. During the exhibition, the Ensemble NEW4ART premiered their concert «Paraphrasen». 


While waiting at the bus stop, the endless roads through the vastness towards "Mountain Dew" can be glimpsed to the south-west. On the other side, to the north-east, the city of "Umami" scatters its civilizing foothills into the suburb of YOUNG LAND EVER FAST.
