Zó! (So!), 2001

Zó! (So!), 2001
offset in magazine ‘Dag van de Publieke Kunst’, 13 October 2001
25,9 x 37,5 cm
edition 50.000
publisher: SKOR, Amsterdam

Note / For its ‘Day of Public Art’ SKOR published a newspaper, the back page of which was offered to Van Warmerdam by Tom van Gestel. Her statement from years earlier ‘Making art is making public’ dovetailed seamlessly with the theme. With the title ‘So!’ she wanted to show that one can, and perhaps must, make art public on the back page of a newspaper – as in this case.

Klaar is Kees (Bob’s your uncle), 1995

Klaar is Kees (Bob’s your uncle), 1995
sticker in artist’s magazine ‘AP’, no. 1/1995
Ø 5 cm
edition 120
publisher: Galerie van Gelder, Amsterdam

Note / In The Netherlands the first name Kees immediately conjures up the expression ‘Klaar is Kees’ (Bob’s your uncle), which is a succinct way of saying that the work is finished. For the first issue of Kees van Gelder’s magazine AP, Van Warmerdam made a sticker with the text ‘Klaar is Kees’, with the instructions to stick it on the last page of the magazine. The fact that there was never a second edition of the magazine gave the sticker a prophetic significance.

Diving Ducks, 1994

Diving Ducks, 1994
bumpers in ‘ZAPP Magazine’, video, sound
quarterly magazine on video, nr 3/94
edition approx. 100 with initials on colour copy
publisher: ZAPP Magazine, Amsterdam

Note / Zapp Magazine invited Van Warmerdam to show a fragment of one of her films in this video magazine. Instead of showing a film fragment, she conceived the work Diving ducks. For this she filmed ducks in the canal that make a plopping sound as they dive underwater. A diving duck – complete with plop – was placed as a bumper between each of the magazine’s video chapters.
