the interim kulturhandlungen festival showcased yena young’s latest project, in collaboration with plastique fantastique, the zeitzelt contemporary keltic tent a tent explores the history of the zeitzelt village and creates a surreal transparent space where time is blended and people gather, experience and search for their own stories.


the tent reflects the history of the swabian alps

 

the yena young and plastique fantastique installation plays, reverts and overlaps the different elements of any ancestral architecture. rather than covering the wooden frame with textile externally, a bubble grows from within, expanding against the wood creating the stage of a timeless theatre.
