    Designed by the artist herself, this publication focuses primarily on her video works. Rosemarie Trockel began working with the medium of film in 1993, pursuing the line of development that had begun with her sculptures and objects. Her most famous works are her knit images. Her videos are concerned with people and animals, as in the slow-motion video entitled Out of the kitchen into the fire (1993), in which a female nude viewed from the rear lays an egg filled with black ink. Bizarre constellations and sequences reveal a certain irony in these works. Rosemarie Trockel’s precise observations of natural processes, her use of materials, which she alters, reinterprets and places in unusual and surprising contexts, make her a very interesting contemporary artist. Rather than producing new “images” herself, she has the capacity to generate new images in the mind of the viewer”.

    Herzogs sidste dage er en dokumentarisk beretning “om naturens hævn, svampenes væren og menneskets livsdrift. Historien følger den tyske filminstruktør Werner Herzogs kamp mod den sjældne sygdom somatoxi og hans heroiske forsøg på at kurere sig selv. Tilstanden skal behandles med stoffet soma, som består af en cocktail af psykedeliske svampe, der bedst lader sig finde i den særegne natur i eksklusionszonen omkring Tjernobylværket i Ukraine. Anført af stalkeren Boris drager Herzog sammen med en mindre ekspedition ind i zonen og afslører dag for dag nye aspekter af en autonom økologi og et desperat menneskes forvandling. Det bliver en meditativ rejse ind i zonens liv og Herzogs deroute.
