The video “dough” by Mika Rottenberg will be exhibited at de Appel Amsterdam starting at March 12.
In a setup of an unusual maze-like production line, women produce dough. They knead, they stretch, they vacuum-pack it. One worker, played by Raqui, has a central role in the production. After having sent the dough through a hole in the floor, she is provided with flowers through another hole in the wall which make her cry. Her tears drop down from her toe and make the dough swell before it is sent out.
