study – colour photograph, perspex, aluminium

Note / Van Warmerdam’s separation came like a bolt from the blue, and the work Forever from 2000 suddenly acquired an opposite meaning: ‘Not forever’. Here, the artist stands holding the work on the same spot where the photo was originally taken, undecided whether to push the work into the trees or throw it into the ditch.

Take a break, 2004

Take a break, 2004
photographs on dibond, wooden shelf
20 x 25 cm / 4 x 26 x 3,5 cm
edition 100

Note / A picture of a cup and saucer appears on the front and back of an aluminium plate. On one side the two red dots have become detached and float above the cup. MvW: ‘When I saw this remarkable cup and saucer I thought: take a break, have a cup of coffee. Then the abstract red spots can induce a daydream of a longer break. A simple cup transports you to a world of longing and to an oasis. Or a mirage.’

Mad cows!, 2002
study – colour photograph on dibond, perspex
20,6 x 31 cm

Note / MvW: ‘Someone once said to me, “Look, a cow with a ‘laken’ (sheet); that’s a Lakenvelder.” I’d never seen these animals in that light before, and they do indeed look as though they’re wearing a sheet. This was in the time of mad cow disease and I thought: this cow is black and white, and black and white can be reversed.

In thought, 2002

In thought, 2002
colour photograph on dibond, perspex
120 x 178 cm
edition 6

In thought, 2002
study – colour photograph on dibond, perspex
20,6 x 31 cm

Note / MvW: ‘I was walking outside my studio with a glass bubble in my hands. The farmhouses and cows reflected in it like a film. In the end I was unable to do anything with this and threw the mirrored bubble in the ditch out of desperation, where the thing remained floating. I liked how it looked in the middle of the duckweed and took a photo of it. Later I thought of also throwing a few smaller bubbles in the ditch and gave the photo the title In thought.’ Because of the way in which In thought came about, the artist says that the photograph is, in fact, a representation of the moment of disoriented ‘thought’ before an actual idea forms.
