“Don’t Mass With My Head”- opening

Rehearsal / Residency - Fri 11 June 2021
WORM Rotterdam
Start → 14:00
End → 20:00

WORM presents a sneak peek of “Don’t Mass With My Head” – a hybrid multimedia installation by composer, sonic designer and visual artist Roel Weerdenburg. Roel built the installation as part of his residency in the new long term project WORM runs named WunderPlatz x SKILLS which aims to disrupt and create new modes of presenting artworks and residencies in our bar the #Wunderbar.

The installation focuses on the repurposing, adapting, re- and upcycling of old electronic equipment. Outside of our building, you are greeted by a cyborg co-created by Roel Weerdenburg and Stitches. This movable piece of the installation gives you a taste of the larger site-specific work situated in our #Wunderbar.

Would you like to give it a better look? You can do that when you visit #Wunderbar’s terrace.
Would you like to meet the artist? You can contact curator Henrietta Müller (henrietta@worm.org) to receive a personal invitation for 11th June. Times: from 14:00-20:00 // 2ppl at the time // each visit takes 20m.

“Don’t Mass With My Head” is made of CRT-TVs and includes a diverse collection of video works made by international artists. The videos are personal and societal, combining abstract and essayistic approaches to filmmaking. The giant physical structure – carrying more than 25 TV screens – strikes chaos and invades the circuit boards.
