Mika Rottenberg at de Appel

March 1, 2011

This spring the films of alumnus Mika Rottenberg (BFA 2001 Fine Arts) will receive their Dutch premiere at de Appel in the Netherlands, in her solo exhibition “Dough Cheese Squeeze and Tropical Breeze. Video Works 2003-2010,” on view March 12 – May 8.

Exceptional women, such as the powerful Heather Foster, the sizeable Queen Raqui (“Her body Utterly Amazing, Her agility astounding”), and the super-tall erotic model Bunny Glamazone, become absurd characters who use their bodies as production machines in Rottenberg’s colorful films. There will also be a printed monograph to accompany the exhibition, the first major publication of Rottenberg’s work.
