The artist presents a behind-the-scenes view of the making of her project for W's Art Issue.
Mika Rottenberg is best known for video installations that explore issues relating to the female body. One recurring theme is an assembly line where women tirelessly create comestibles by harvesting bits of themselves. For W, the artist built an elaborate multichambered set in her Harlem, NY studio, constructing each "room" to fit the person she photographed inside it.View the photographs.
