Note / A rotating camera was set up at the entrance to Galerie van Gelder and connected directly to a monitor for the exhibition ‘JCJ Vanderheyden / Marijke van Warmerdam’. JCJ Vanderheyden’s camera, which recorded visitors as they entered, stood on Van Warmerdam’s green pedestal, which was used the following year in Galerie Micheline Szwajcer’s stand at the art fair Art Forum Berlin to draw attention to Van Warmerdam’s ultra-short two-hour exhibition in DAAD, Berlin.

Note / After making this work Van Warmerdam realized that she had inadvertently made an extra ephemeral response to Piero Manzoni’s Socle du Monde. With the white sky in the mirror and her hands supporting it, she could only give this work the title ‘Pedestal’.

Note / As a result of the nomination for the Prix de Rome, which involved a cash prize of ten thousand guilders, Van Warmerdam decided to take a small crew to Morocco and make a film about ‘seeing and being seen’. A camera was set up on a tripod in the middle of the Jemaa el Fna Square in Marrakesh and within a few minutes a large group of people had gathered around it. The camera started rolling and the group of onlookers was filmed from the centre out.
