Art Sonje Center – Aernout Mik
Art Sonje Center presents Dutch artist Aernout Mik’s solo exhibition, Aernout Mik: Parallelities, from August 29 to November 1, 2015. The exhibition will display four separate video installations that focus on boundaries created from the differences between nations, people, and ideologies, as well as the socio-psychological phenomena occurring around them. The exhibition title reflects the artist’s art world, which presents differentiated yet connected parallel situations such as the real and the unreal, the past and the present, as well as borderlines between countries. Mik’s art capture not only the feeling of conflict individuals go through during the process of crossing different boundaries, but also the individuals and groups that conform to given social systems or who sometimes live as bystanders. Commissioned by the REAL DMZ PROJECT and being shown for the first time at this exhibition, Ice Cream Hill (2014–15).
The Mondriaan Fund contributed with a Grant International Presentation for this exhibition.
