Note / Van Warmerdam once said how she thought that a picture she found of a cat’s head wearing glasses was wonderful. People who visited her were asked to stick a good few pins into a giant pin-cushion in order to create the picture of the cat. She explains: ‘Many hands make light work.’ Pin’s head is the first of her works that was sold in a gallery.
