Note / The calyxes of a petunia quiver more than usual in the shopping basket on the front of a bicycle. With the grey road surface rushing past, Van Warmerdam had the film loop Trembling served to her on a platter. To make it, she first had to ask René Welker to return the plant, which had been a gift. MvW: ‘A strange rhythm is created because the horn-shaped flowers are so top-heavy. It is difficult to fix your attention on single flowers. Every attempt to do so is immediately thwarted.’
