Note / For years Van Warmerdam had a large number of paper handkerchiefs printed with ‘Yes’, with which she intended to make something one day. When she was thinking about a photograph of a lace wedding dress, she constructed a sculpture with ‘Yes’, which took the place of her then husband. Her own face is obscured by the leaves. She added the bird’s house in the top right corner as an iconographic element, and the tree with its foliage as a repoussoir offers a vista of an unpredictable yet sunny perspective. (See illustration p. 179.)
