Mika Rottenburg's video installation shows an imaginative world of surrealistic scenes where banal objects created in lengthy processes reminiscent of factory installation on the assembly line. The role of workers gives Rottenberg often women who feed on that they have distinctive kroppsutseenden, such as extreme obesity, muscle, length or unusually long fingernails or hair. In claustrophobic framing produces women maraschino cherries, dough, make-up and wipes in the most amazing ways. The environments Mika Rottenberg creates in the films also extends into the exhibition space. Everyday aesthetics gets new meaning when production and consumption chain that surrounds us is both intimately familiar and intuitive alarming. The exhibition will include works from the early 2000s until today.
