Uit of thuis (Out or at home), 2010

Uit of thuis (Out or at home), 2010
installation with glass, photograph, metal
283 x 334 x 10 cm

Note / The work Out or at home, as in Walk-through landscape of 2000, makes use of a game of ’tis-’tisn’t. The work hangs at the entrance to a block of flats, which the artist defines as a home base where you either are, or are not. From the right of the work a slug can be seen and from the left a snail. MvW: ‘To me, making art is not so much a goal in itself, reacting to things is a particular motivation for me. That’s what I did here.’

Note / After the Blossom paintings of 2009, in 2010 Van Warmerdam made a new series of Blossom works, in which the striping, stamping and sweeping is replaced by a mainly pointillist technique. The touches and streaks of paint are applied to the canvases using small and large brushes. Van Warmerdam wanted to give this work an airy title.
