Presentation Supertoll! Tijs Rooijakkers


Please come to the presentation of Supertoll! by artist Tijs Rooijakkers (Vorstenbosch, 1975), on which he has worked intensively for the last six months within the walls of the museum. With Supertoll! Rooijakkers wants to build a bridge between the museum and the city, between art and urban culture and between the inhabitants of Eindhoven and their environment.

During this project, Rooijakkers collaborated closely with the Eindhoven rapper Fresku. The semicircular wall of ‘The Eye’ was covered with wooden slats on which Fresku wrote texts about personal motivations and ambitions. These wooden slats were then steamed and bent by Rooijakkers into a huge spinning top, which is on show in the museum.

A video of the project with music by Fresku will be released on 7 December.
