Note / In 1994, for the first time ever an art fair was held in a hotel. Each stallholder had the use of one room in which to stay the night and another in which to exhibit. Van Warmerdam was invited by Galerie van Gelder to show a work in room 1405 of the Hilton Hotel. She made a lifelike replica of the gallery owner, who lies asleep in his hotel room while visitors might also bump into him in person.
