Note / In Roeren in de verte Van Warmerdam combines the ‘here’ and ‘there’ in various ways in one single image. This mental construct yields not only the interior and exterior, a tabletop and a horizon, but also stirring a cup of tea in the room and the snow outside. MvW: ‘The snow is emphasized by the fact that it’s gradually accelerated and slowed down as it falls; it’s self-evident, but not quite.’
