WORM Piratebay Residency
WORM Piratebay works with artists long term to explore the topics and ideas that they are curious about. These residencies give audiences the opportunity to meet and engage with artists while they are researching, and to make the process of art production less intimidating. 🙂

Our first resident is Myriam Meret.

School of Rest (Research residency with Myriam Meret)
Facing the responsibility of being a human now is already a big load of internal, mental and emotional work in itself. This feeling constantly needs to be suppressed, so we can remain a ‘functional’ member of this (on the edge to mutation) society. And, from suppression, arises tension.

During this residency I would like to build principles, documents and practices that will enable us to learn how we – with our own personal history, our own constitution, the energy amounts and qualities that our own life-activities require – need to rest.

Rest is an invitation to work on re-enabling ourselves, into developing our internal power, make us aware of it, so we can find access to justice, good quality of life authentic connection and happiness.


Rest Practices Online Collective Performance
30 October from 16.30-18.00 on ZOOM.

Myriam Meret will host a collective rest experience on ZOOM.
We invite you to enter our ZEN ZOOM ROOM and share your REST practices. What do we mean by that? You can lay under a cosy blanket, meditate, build an altar, cook. Whatever makes you relaxed. Or you can share a statement about rest and show us objects and books which are important for your rest practice. Together we’re creating a collage of rest.

We encourage participants to join ZOOM on time at 16:30.  We start with a short intro by Myriam, who will explain how the evening will work. Once the collective action begins you can stay for however long you can and claim your moment of rest.

We ask you to join with your camera and mic on. This evening will also be recorded for archival purposes. The Zen Zoom Room is open to everybody!

However, we ask you to respect this space. If you show any signs of harassment or hate speech you will be banned from the space.
