Mika Rottenberg’s self-titled solo exhibition presents a selection of work from various series created within the past seven years. Rottenberg’s work focuses on elucidating the mechanics of late-stage, global capitalism by way of absurd and poetic comparisons. The exhibition occupies all galleries comprising the historic building of the museum. Works on view will include NoNoseKnows (Artist Variant) (2015), a video and sculptural installation that combines fact and fiction, documenting a group of Chinese laborers who harvest pearls from oysters in ZhuJi, China, empty high rises near Shanghai and a set built in the artist studio in New York. The work first debuted at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015). In a parallel gallery, a new variant of the artist’s recent commission for Skulptur Projekte Münster (opening June 2017) titled Cosmic Generator, will punctuate the space alongside Seven (2011), a work commissioned for Performa 11 (New York) and produced in collaboration with Jon Kessler. Seven will be activated by performances throughout the duration of the exhibition (schedule forthcoming).
