Stropdas (Tie), 1995
tie, microphone, tape recorder, sound tape
147,5 x 9,5 cm

Note / For over twenty years Kees van Gelder has invited artists to make a tie on the occasion of their solo exhibition. For her first exhibition Van Warmerdam came up with a white tie with a microphone and a dictaphone for the inside pocket of the gallery owner, who was able to use it to record the comments of visitors at the opening. After the opening, the gallery owner used this tie again in 1997 at the opening of Van Warmerdam’s exhibition in the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. Thus far the cassette recordings have never been made public
