Marijke Van Warmerdam: Echo, Echo
London, 1 November – 2 December 2000
Lisson Gallery is delighted to be hosting Dutch artist Marijke van Warmerdam's first solo exhibition in the UK. Marijke represented the Netherlands in the Dutch Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 1995. She was awarded the DAAD scholarship in Berlin in 1998 and has had recent solo exhibitions at Frac Languedocñ Roussillon (Montpellier), Museum Ludwig Cologne, Stedelijk van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven) and the ICA, Boston.
The work of Marijke van Warmerdam encompasses film, video, sculpture, photography and installation. At Lisson Gallery she will be showing three 16mm film installations, photographic works and an ice sculpture.
The imagery of van Warmerdam is simplistic and beautiful. Some works involve the restaging of real life observations, while others are derived from the imagination. Her films are mostly without narrative, depicting simple actions or situations in an endless loop. In The Small Scale Film Projection, 1999 the repetitive unfolding of a single action becomes compellingly captivating and hypnotic. Van Warmerdam’s works contain a strong dualistic thinking, inviting the viewer to move between polarities such as day and night, upwards and downwards, stillness and movement.Read more
