Marijke van Warmerdam made her first multiple in collaboration with curator Moritz Küng and graphic designers Mevis & Van Deursen when she exhibited for the first time in Galerie van Gelder & AP / Associated Publishers. Moritz Küng designed a wooden wall embracing a gallery wall, Mevis & Van Deursen came with an announcement poster ‘Uitnodiging!’ showing a crying black girl that could be understood as one that is either crying or laughing, or both perhaps. For the exhibition itself another poster was designed depicting a girl wearing sun glasses. Marijke van Warmerdam showed a moving (with computer sensor steered) mannequin and dressed in a robe showing an Arcadia landscape. The latter is in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
