About her works

Her pieces celebrate occasions in cultural history that
exemplify extremist behavior and belief.
She is best known for her reworking's of iconic moments
from cultural history in deliberately amateurish and
improvisatory performances.
She likes to make her works stand out from the rest and
she is not afraid to do so.

Hermitos Children, the
pilot episode


For this particular interaction she used 32 flat screens, 8

headphones some bean bags. With the use of colours and sound
as well.

About the installation piece.

The particular installation that I looked at of hers I think is a very interesting and
innovative way of showcasing a piece of work. I like the way that she splits the
image/ video on to so many screens and I believe this just shows and empathises
just how life can go in so many ways and so connects to the title of the piece,
Hermitos Children, because as children your life can change course so easily and
you can end up doing something that you would never have thought you would
have. I also like the way that you are given bean bags to sit on while you watch,
this helps the audience to relax more I believe and so there attention is more on
the work then on how there legs are starting to feel standing up watching it for a
prolonged amount of time. I do not like the idea of having to watch it with
headphones though but without being there physically to look at it I would not
know if it helps add to the piece having headphones or not.

She currently lives in New York.
Her career was at its most prominent in the 1960s and
DIY is very prominent within her works as she tends to
build sculptures to hold her video installations .

A few of her work pieces of wiki.

Video Poem - InVideo Poem(1976), Kubotas self-portrait is displayed on
a small monitor that viewers can see through a vulva shaped opening of a
purple bag. A fan, placed inside the bag to keep the equipment cool, added
pulsating movements. The bag had been given to her by her first
boyfriend, Takehisa Kosugi, whom she used to support by working three
jobs. Video Poem challenges male authority by her use of her exboyfriends bag.
River, 1979-1981- Consists of three monitors suspended screen-down over
a crescent shaped metal structure filled with water. The videotapes playing
on the monitors reflect in the water and the structure.[21] It was first
shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

"Duchampiana", 1977


Has a strong DIY feel to it, made as a sculptural piece to hold

screens so she can show her videos.

About the installation piece.

I like the piece of work because I like how she has placed
the screens in the stair case. They all seem to be centred
and of the same size, I think that this would be a very
interesting piece to view at a art gallery as it seems to
challenge you view on such a daily object as a stair case. I
like the simplicity of the installation but in some cases it
could seem like a very simple easy thing to put together
that anyone could do but I am sure that the video helps
add to the astatic of the object and vice versa.
