LandRush opened in Switzerland with an exciting experiment, showing two chapters of the project, LandRush and Dry West, parallel in two galleries in two cities:
We installed Dry West as a five-channel video installation at COALMINE in Winterthur. In addition, we also premiered the Moonscape print series about water infrastructure in the American West.
In parallel, a spatial installation of the four LandRush sub-chapters from Ethiopia, Iowa, Brazil, and Germany opened at the Photobastei in Zurich, just 30 minutes away. We conceived them as a spatial installation consisting of a dual projection and two iPads with the LandRush App.
This double exhibition approach offered an exciting tension and insight into the complexities of today’s food production realities.
