“In the United States, which Van Warmerdam first visited in 1989, the telephone buttons can be used for both numbers and letters. This led her to replace the meaningless letters with the words ‘Hear, there, every, where’, as though these words can be seen or heard while dialing. The postcard was produced by the artist herself; the four short words are silk-screen printed onto the card.”
From text by Kees van Gelder in catalogue ‘Close by in the distance’ (2011), p. 35.
