Babyraket (Baby rocket), 1998
metal, screen print, other materials
approx. 136 x 39 x 89 cm

Note / In addition to Vrroem, Van Warmerdam wanted to make a work for the exhibition in Galerie Micheline Szwajcer in Antwerp as a reaction to the Belgian comic book culture. For this work she chose an image associated with the comic hero Tintin and made a rocket, which can actually be launched by standing on a pedal. On the advice of the firm of solicitors Boekel De Nerée concerning the copyright, she asked Erven Hergé’s permission to use the typical red and white rocket.

Another day, 2011

Another day, 2011
screen print on paper, frame
110 x 80 cm

Note / Throughout her 2010 stay in South Africa, Van Warmerdam took photos of both the moon and the sun. Time and again she captured a super-romantic kitschy sun with her camera. The title appears in large letters as a kind of lowered horizon in the picture. In addition, she has manipulated the silkscreen prints with various rounds of iris printing, making every print unique.

Note / When Van Warmerdam took a photo of the moon during a trip to South Africa, it turned out that the camera had moved. MvW: ‘I saw a romantic image in which clichés about the moon and love converged.’

Tree 3, 2008

Tree 3, 2008
screen print on plastic mirror, dibond
149,5 x 99 cm

Note / Tree is a series of photos showing images of a tree reflected in
water, but the way these works are experienced, is a step removed from
reality. This is because the photos are literally upturned. The tree appears
to be standing upright because the photo is shown upside down;
it fully complies with the codes of a tree, but with an uneasy sense of
non-reality.

screen print on plastic mirror, dibond
66 x 100 cm

This bank, that bank, 2006
screen print on plastic mirror, dibond
2 parts, 66 x 100 cm each
edition 5 + 1 AP

Note / Here the artist stands by a canal in the countryside and shows the left and right banks in the mirror she’s holding. Both reflections are in her words ‘a slice of reality’, like a captured ‘here’ and ‘there’.

Pedestal, 2006

Pedestal, 2006
screen print on plastic mirror, dibond
66 x 100 cm
edition 5 + 1 AP

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’.

As a bridge Van Warmerdam plastered a wall with arrows, which pointed to the rear space of the museum. Similarly, arrows also pointed in the opposite direction, towards the front space.
