Kill your Darlings – Opening

WHO WANTS TO DESTROY THEIR WORK?
20:30

WHO WANTS TO DESTROY THEIR WORK?
Do you, the artist, have the guts to Kill Your Darlings?
Bring it and lets destroy it together.
We invite everybody to bring a failed artwork.

We stop with conserving.
And glorify destruction.
In the ashes we shall rise
There is no true beauty without decay (and destruction).

Not all art is meant to be conserved for ever. Some art can be killed. Ever wanted to see how artists say goodbye to their own artworks? We wondered. So we decided to organise an event where this will happen.

WORM S/ash Gallery asked 4 artists to build an explosion/exposition [sic] in a day. A destruction ceremony will take place from 20:30 till 22:30. During this time we will say goodbye to the works of Rowan van AsMette Sterre,Marta Wörner & Eothen Stearn.

Some will say goodbye to their work in a conceptual way, while others will literally destroy. Kill. Burn. Freeze.

If you are interested in killing of one of your own darlings, drop by! We could always use more chaos. The result of the destruction ceremony will be left exactly as is for 9 days, and presented as an expo. Contact kolijn@worm.org for more information.

But remember, safety first. Or at least second.
