Note / ‘Snowy’ and ‘snowless’ was the point of departure for the first
works in a series. For this Van Warmerdam asked a photographer to
take pictures in the winter and to do so again six months later in exactly
the same spots. To make the series she asked herself to what extent a
dual image of mountains with and without snow can be turned, twisted
and toppled. In Fake lake she takes her first step by placing a snowless
mountain upside-down on top of a mountain with snow, thereby creating
the suggestion of a lake with a distant horizon.
