Bene, 1989

Ø 192 x 8 cm

Note / Van Warmerdam thought a hoop with two running legs inside it seemed like a good idea to initiate movement. By actually giving the wheel a push, it is possible to make the legs run even better. The word ‘bene’, ‘well’ in Italian, is a phonetic play on words with the Dutch ‘benen’ (legs).

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’.
