Tumble, 1990
wood, glass, metal
90 x 180 x 9 cm

Note / A double folded wire mesh bed and a series of tumblers in a row are sandwiched between two wooden boards. The artist intended to evoke a sort of dizziness with the undulating motion of the wire mesh on the one hand and whisky glasses on the other.

Hidden works

 

Hear, there, everywhere, 1990

Hear, there, everywhere, 1990
screen print on offset
10,5 x 15 cm

Note / In the United States, which Van Warmerdam first visited in 1989, the telephone buttons can be used for both numbers and letters. This led her to replace the meaningless letters with the words ‘Hear, there, every, where’, as though these words can be seen or heard while dialling. The postcard was produced by the artist herself; the four short words are silk-screen printed onto the card.
