Plenty, 1998

Plenty, 1998
offset on carton, plastic
approx. 24 x 60 x 39 cm

Note / Plenty stems from the video Another planet, in which the words ‘the end’ are repeated endlessly. The recurring text image ‘the end’ left Van Warmerdam with a strong feeling of ‘and’, ‘and’, ‘and’. In Plenty the word ‘and’ is printed in different languages on cards, which the artist placed in a plastic basket. The cards with the words ‘and, og, und, en, et’ were sent as invitations for her exhibition ‘Og, og’ in Galleri Riis in Oslo.

Your eyes only, 1991

Your eyes only, 1991
offset on aluminium
10 x 18,5 cm

Note / MvW: ‘Quite often my wish is to make an image that both stands still and moves on, as if I come closer to my subject. In Your eyes only repetition was used in order to have multiplied sections within the images. I could not resist alluding to this duality.’ Van Warmerdam left the eyes of the spaghetti-eating woman out of the picture in order to draw maximum attention to the form of the décolleté as an eye.

Flip book for catalogue, 2014
offset, flipbook integrated in catalogue ‘Time is Ticking’
26 x 19,5 cm
edition 1.260

Note / The medium film is a time-based art, just as a book is. This thought gave Van Warmerdam the idea to make a flipbook that piggy backs on the pages of the catalogue. MvW: ‘Originally I wanted to express the speed of the flipbook in the title by calling it “Prrrrrr……” but to emphasize a book in a book seemed more to the point to me.’

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.

Diary 2000, 1999
offset, leporello
21,4 x 15,3 x 2,8 cm
edition 500, of which 30 signed
publisher: CCA, Kitakyushu, Japan

Note / The CCA in Kitakyushu invited Van Warmerdam to make an artist’s book. She took her inspiration from The great wave off Kanagawa, a woodcut by the Japanese artist Hokusai in which some small boats defy an enormous wave, with Mount Fuji in the background. A world-famous cliché image, which she used for a proposed office diary. This sixteen-metre-long concertina-type diary indirectly refers to the Japanese scroll; one side of the diary is written in Japanese and the other in English.

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.
