About

Mika Rottenberg’s mesmerising video installations are humorous and surrealistic. In Mary’s Cherries (2005) three female wrestlers take part in a bizarre production line, turning red painted fingernails into maraschino cherries.  The video is showing as part of The Irresistible Force, in Tate Modern’s Level 2 Gallery, a dedicated space for emerging international artists.  Rottenberg talks about her ideas and the process of making the video.
