International Airport Montello
This new project by eteam in collaboration with the citizens of Montello Nevada, takes place in a 10-acre piece of land that the eteam purchased at auction on eBay for less than $500 dollars. It consists of creating recurring events in an abandoned airstrip that is approximately 6,000 feet and located nearby the eteam’s land in Montello. With the assistance of the eteam, a number of people and local businesses in Montello will revamp their interior spaces turning the town into a place “like any other” airport. International Airport Montello is commissioned by Art in General, New York.
eteam’s members are Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger. Their work is guided by a process of understanding the circumstances and possibilities of a specific place or site. They have worked in such unusual sites as skyscrapers, public parks, the internet and the desert. Their projects have been recently featured in exhibitions at P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center and Momenta in New York City; the Soap Factory in Minneapolis; Grizedale Arts in England; and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Spain, among other places. To develop the International Airport Montello, the eteam has participated in the Center for Land Use and Interpretation (CLUI) residency in Wendover, Utah.
