Spiegelzaal (Mirror room), 1992
installation with mirrored glass, ceiling hook, couch, cupboards
variable dimensions

Note / The two opposite-facing wall cabinets containing 250 mirrored bottles and the glass drops on the ceiling were conceived by the artist as a moment of reflection for the bride and groom, while they await the start of the wedding ceremony on the seat that she designed.

Pashok (Fitting cubicle), 1992

Pashok (Fitting cubicle), 1992
fabric, pulley, winch, cord
200 x 80 x 80 cm

Note / In a fitting cubicle you change clothes and look at yourself, to then be looked at by others. Van Warmerdam seeks to emphasize the transformation that occurs in the cubicle by rigging it up with a block and tackle, so as to achieve lightning-fast disappearance and reappearance.

Note / To mark the opening of the new Rijksakademie building in Sarphatistraat in Amsterdam, Van Warmerdam was invited to make a new work in collaboration with Karin Post. Van Warmerdam had visited a half pipe with speeding skateboarders in Museumplein and for this occasion she made a replica of the half pipe and invited the skateboarders to stay in the Rijksakademie for the weekend.

Note / Handstand together with Passage, Pashok, Kring and Fare thee well formed Van Warmerdam’s entry for the Prix de Rome 1992. MvW: ‘Since childhood I have done countless handstands in my room and making a film of a girl doing a handstand was very obvious, once I’d decided to make something with movement.’

Note / As a result of the nomination for the Prix de Rome, which involved a cash prize of ten thousand guilders, Van Warmerdam decided to take a small crew to Morocco and make a film about ‘seeing and being seen’. A camera was set up on a tripod in the middle of the Jemaa el Fna Square in Marrakesh and within a few minutes a large group of people had gathered around it. The camera started rolling and the group of onlookers was filmed from the centre out.
