For her first solo show in France, the young artist Mika Rottenberg (born 1976 in Buenos Aires, lives and works in the United States since 1991) presents her video installations in different spaces throughout la maison rouge.
Mika Rottenberg’s videos portray production systems for which labour is provided exclusively by women whose body is both raw material and tool. She analyses, not without humour, notions of alienation and exploitation of the female body, drawing the spectator deep into these endlessly productive enterprises. She shows her videos inside installations that allude to the films by reproducing their decor.
