Note / Artist Jan Rothuizen once sent Van Warmerdam a cassette tape on which he had asked various people in the street to say the name ‘Marijke van Warmerdam’. She then made a loop of this recording and turned it into a sound sculpture. It is the first tape in this edition of unique works. In the subsequent tapes the name Van Warmerdam was replaced by that of the person who bought the work. 20 copies eventually came into circulation; the production of this unlimited edition was halted on 31 December 2001 in accordance with an agreement made with the publisher.

Poef (Pouf), 1995
pouf, motor, adapter
26 x Ø 48 cm

Note / Van Warmerdam thought that a seat from which to quietly observe the works in an exhibition was a nice idea, but where would that seat have to be placed? In answer to that question she made a pouf that automatically shifts position from time to time.
