Repetition and doubling is one of the favorite motives Marijke van Warmerdam applies in her films and photo works. In this print a picture from her childhood shows her energetically pointing into the air.
“There is the sun” is characteristic for Van Warmerdam’s way of thinking when it comes to how things change position in past, present and future. It is one of her recurring main themes, i.e. anticipating on what comes and reflecting on what happened before. Here Marijke van Warmerdam mirrored a snapshot taken during her early years. Due to its doubling it seems that the child refers to the sun’s changing position in time.
