Note / In this work a wooden merry-go-round horse runs along a sandy path. Fantasy and reality are united here by means of two films edited together. MvW: ‘Long ago I sat on a horse that refused to be hurried. After the umpteenth circle I pressed my cheek against the animal’s neck. As a little girl I saw the fairground crowd, the houses and my parents blur past in a strange first film made by the merry-go-round. Now and then as an artist I feel like this again when making a new film.’

Note / As soon as the lift doors open, a woman on a screen looks you straight in the eye. You step into the lift, the doors close and you’re alone with her. Van Warmerdam imagined how it would be if the woman then gives you an encouraging wink.
