Artist Talk: Aernout Mik

Art Sonje Center presents an Artist Talk by Dutch artist Aernout Mik in relation to the opening of his first solo exhibition Parallelities in Korea. Mik’s work expands the field of “moving pictures” as he crosses the boundary between performance, film, sculpting, and architecture. He produces a structure that reflects an exhibition venue, while installing a screen inside it to show his film. This installation method combines film and physical space, providing viewers with a unique physical and psychological experience as it blurs the border between an actual space and the virtual space in the film. Through the Artist Talk, Mik discusses in detail his unique installation method, and also introduces his previous works that will provide a deeper understanding of his art world.
