Time is ticking, 2014
installation of 12 blankets, pure lambs wool
240 x 220 cm each

Note / Van Warmerdam stretches time in her films by using a loop. The sense of time disappears and a dream state ensues because of the hypnotic effect of the film loop. Dreams occur under blankets but time disappears there in another way. MvW: ‘Sometimes older people experience and read time differently. Maybe the blankets are a summons; “Time is fast, soon it’s past!”.’
