Good night, 2014

Good night, 2014
installation of 12 pillow cases with print, cushions, filling
85 x 100 x 20 cm each

Note / Aside from the actual movement one sees in the artist’s film loops, there is often a suggestion of movement in her work. No wonder that one sees a hand here waving goodbye on a cushion. MvW: ‘When you leave you wave farewell, you tell the world where you are “Good night”.’

Time is ticking, 2014

Time is ticking, 2014
installation of 12 blankets, pure lambs wool
240 x 220 cm each

Note / Van Warmerdam stretches time in her films by using a loop. The sense of time disappears and a dream state ensues because of the hypnotic effect of the film loop. Dreams occur under blankets but time disappears there in another way. MvW: ‘Sometimes older people experience and read time differently. Maybe the blankets are a summons; “Time is fast, soon it’s past!”.’

New balls, please!, 2014

New balls, please!, 2014
multi channel sound installation with wood, glass, metal, speakers, sound equipment
sound recording 96Khz-24bit, 8’30”
approx. 280 x 1900 x 135 cm

Note / New balls, please! is a sound piece to which a sculpture has been added. The sound of bouncing tennis balls can be heard emanating from the work, with its zigzag-frontage and vibrating windowpanes. The installation is a response to the exceptionally tall windows in the Seitenlichtsaal at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.

edition 3 + 1 AP

Note / Van Warmerdam often uses image and title as two dissimilar entities living in symbiosis. Such a combination emphasizes elements of what is already literally shown in the image itself. In this work it is a combination of time and the light of a photographed running iPad apparently switched on in the morning when one gets up.

Flip book for catalogue, 2014

Flip book for catalogue, 2014
offset, flipbook integrated in catalogue ‘Time is Ticking’
26 x 19,5 cm
edition 1.260

Note / The medium film is a time-based art, just as a book is. This thought gave Van Warmerdam the idea to make a flipbook that piggy backs on the pages of the catalogue. MvW: ‘Originally I wanted to express the speed of the flipbook in the title by calling it “Prrrrrr……” but to emphasize a book in a book seemed more to the point to me.’
