Fonteintjes (Fountains), 1993
installation with copper fountains, water pressure regulators
variable dimensions

Note / Van Warmerdam wanted to make a piece that was both functional and sculptural for a commission from a health insurance company. She came up with drinking fountains, because – in the context of health – water is one of the primary necessities of life for humans.

Note / In 1993 Curator Moritz Küng in collaboration with colleague friends Armand Mevis, Linda van Deursen and Van Warmerdam staged the exhibition ‘Uitnodiging!’ in AP, a project space of Galerie van Gelder. Van Warmerdam’s contribution was a computer-controlled doll, the idea being that it was the exhibition’s first visitor.
