Mika Rottenberg. Video

As winner of the first Cartier Award at the 2006 Frieze Art Fair, Mika Rottenberg was commissioned to create the video “Chasing Waterfalls: The Rise and Fall of the Amazing Seven Sutherland Sisters.” The video is a glimpse into the lives of seven sisters from the 19th century who captured attention for their extremely long hair with which they built a fortune by selling their unique anti-baldness cure. Invoking the mystical properties of women’s hair, Rottenberg uses a feminist approach to investigate the worlds of economics and production. The legend of the Seven Sutherland Sisters inspired Rottenberg’s multi-channel installation Cheese at the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Mika Rottenberg is represented by Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, New York.
