Life-sized projections Oldehove.

The Oldehove was too skewed and too unfinished to be a status symbol for Leeuwarden. However, for Lân van taal, the tower – often the subject of story and song – is in fact a perfect, stubborn icon. It’s also the ideal background for four video artworks created by various, unexpected combinations of (language) artists!

From the opening weekend of Leeuwarden-Fryslân, European Capital of Culture, a different large-scale video work can be seen projected on the Oldehove every three months throughout 2018. Each projection is created by a trio, each of which includes an artist working with language (such as a poet, rapper, writer or spoken word performer) and a filmmaker/video artist.

Artists who will definitely participate include:
– poet Tsead Bruinja, singer Herman van Veen en video artist Jules van Hulst (1 Feb – 8 Apr)
– filmmaker/musician René Duursma, writer/poet Rodaan Al Galidi en animator Antonia Rehnen (12 Apr – 22 July)
– singer/poet Nynke Laverman, composer/percussionist Sytze Pruiksma en video artist Douwe Dijkstra (26 July – 30 Sep)

Enjoy language (together with many others) in stunning, unexpected shapes and sounds. The projections are free for everyone to see!
