Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by Mika Rottenberg, the first major presentation of her work on the West Coast, in anticipation of the global release of ‘Remote’: her first feature-length film, made in collaboration with filmmaker Mahyad Tousi.

About

Opening 23 June, the artist’s first Los Angeles exhibition will feature video works – ‘Spaghetti Blockchain’ (2019), ‘Cosmic Generator’ (2017), ‘NoNoseKnows’ (2015), and ‘Sneeze’ (2012) – in addition to new kinetic sculptures, drawings, and installations.

Rottenberg illustrates the absurdity of humanity’s rampant production, distribution, and consumption of objects by juxtaposing existing industry with her own, often unexpected, manufacturing systems. ‘I think of objects in terms of the processes behind them and the idea that humankind is captured in everything around us. I want to make these processes more visual. If art has any power, it is in making things visible.’ From pearl and food cultivation to the mass-production of wholesale plastic items sold in China, Rottenberg excavates the processes humans invent to create a sense of control.
