Hello, hello, 1989
performance with voice

Note / This is the very first work, although initially Van Warmerdam did not know it would be her very first work. During a stay in New York she gave a lecture at Yale University on her interests at that time. As an introduction she came up with a loop that begins with the words: ‘Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello…’, after which she continued her lecture with ‘Thank you all for coming. My name is Marijke van Warmerdam, and I am from Amsterdam, Holland’.
