Bera, Sune, 1998
ceramics, text, 2 parts
edition 200, of which 100 numbered, artist’s initials in print on saucer
publisher: Malmö Konsthall

Note / MvW: ‘Bera Nordal of the Malmö Konsthall asked me to make a multiple and then I saw the café-au-lait cups in the restaurant of the Konsthall. I thought; if you write Sune on the saucer and Bera on the cup, then she covers him, while he occasionally pops up when you take a sip of your coffee.’

Lucky you!, 1998

Lucky you!, 1998
offset on carton, varnish, paint
10 x 15 cm
edition 500
publisher: Malmö Konsthall

Note / Van Warmerdam was asked permission for a postcard of her work to be made for the museum shop of the Malmö Konsthall. She gave it, but she also wanted to make a new work in the form of a card. That became Lucky you!, a scratch card under which she drew a yellow sun, referring indirectly to both Bera Nordal’s new position and the appointment of Sune Nordgren in Baltic, Gateshead.
