Note / MvW: ‘For Museo Serralves in Porto I made this mini basket with ‘and’ cards. As well as being my next exhibition location after Rotterdam, this is also another work in itself and so it always remains a case of and, and, and…’

Note / MvW: ‘Allowing thoughts to flutter around or bounce is important to the way I work and is extremely close to the act of looking. This is something very different from analysis, which usually only occurs afterwards. It is good, though, to look back every now and then.’

screen print on paper, frame
110 x 80 cm

Note / Throughout her 2010 stay in South Africa, Van Warmerdam took photos of both the moon and the sun. Time and again she captured a super-romantic kitschy sun with her camera. The title appears in large letters as a kind of lowered horizon in the picture. In addition, she has manipulated the silkscreen prints with various rounds of iris printing, making every print unique.

Note / When Van Warmerdam took a photo of the moon during a trip to South Africa, it turned out that the camera had moved. MvW: ‘I saw a romantic image in which clichés about the moon and love converged.’

Rrrolle - red, 2011

Rrrolle – red, 2011
35 mm film loop, colour, 0’32”
projector, loop system
approx. 300 x 400 cm
edition 3 + 1 AP
added: ProRes 422 HQ, aspect ratio 4:3

Note / MvW: ‘A blue-winged macaw is just as beautiful as a red-winged macaw and that’s why I had both birds turn a somersault on their perch.’

Note / Van Warmerdam is sensitive to the directness of onomatopoeic appeals in titles. The titles Rrrolle – blue and Rrrolle – red are examples of this onomatopoeia.

Face to face, 2011

Face to face, 2011
35 mm film loop, colour, 2’14”
projector, loop system
approx. 300 x 530 cm
edition 3 + 1 AP
added: ProRes 422 HQ, aspect ratio 16:9

Note / In Face to face a group of macaws circle round a tree, which appears to exert a strong force of attraction on the birds. The tree trunk has an anthropoid face. Could that be the reason for all the excitement? One might believe it is, particularly when one of the macaws goes and sits on the ‘chin’ of the tree and looks straight into the tree trunk’s eyes. But is it true? MvW: ‘People have a primitive urge to see faces and objects in things and in the film the birds also seem to have that tendency. To me, Face to face is an encounter not just between the birds and the tree, but also between the viewer of the film and the tree.’
