"Everyone feels weird in their own bodies and if you see someone that is at ease with an extreme body, that is inspirational. The way I work with the talents is like a form of method acting, very task based. I don’t give them a script; I give them instructions because I want authentic reactions. If you give your performers lines then it becomes a form of acting, for me it is a behavioral experiment. I want their body to act, not their minds. I myself function as a cheerleader rather than a director; I shout encouragements to the point of getting on their nerves."

—Mika Rottenberg, in conversation with Ann Demeester, excerpted from Mika Rottenberg.

Mika Rottenberg

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co.
Foreword by Ann Demeester. Text by Linda Williams, Hsuan L. Hsu, Efrat Mishori.

The ersatz factories and farms that appear in the video-installations of Mika Rottenberg (born 1976) are tended by female laborers with unusual features. Uncommonly fat, tall, muscular or long-haired women work on strange, alchemical assembly lines to turn red fingernails into maraschino cherries, or to squeeze together blush, lettuce and rubber into a curious and magical product. Published on the occasion of Rottenberg's retrospective exhibition at de Appel Arts Centre, Amsterdam, this first publication on the acclaimed young artist presents a comprehensive overview of her work to date. It includes extensive sections on all of Rottenberg's major video installations, culminating with her latest, “Squeeze” (2010). Video stills, diagrams, drawings and previously unpublished source material are interwoven with essays investigating the work from political, philosophical and historical perspectives. Interviews conducted by the artist with some of the performers whose extreme physiques she showcases in her videos provide unique insight into Rottenberg's process of blending fact and fiction to create her highly original work.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times

Roberta Smith

Ms. Ruttenberg’s latest efforts make her a force to contend with as a narrator and symbolist, a form maker and colorist. Coating sexual tensions with a storybook innocence, she works in a triangle bordered by Louise Bourgeois, Viola Frey and Beatrix Potter… She also draws on the centuries-old tradition of porcelain figurines while studiously ignoring all boundaries, especially those dividing insider and outsider; art and craft; and high, low and kitsch.
