Amsterdam-based sculptor Aernout Mik creates walk-in installations where video film combines with architectural elements to transform familiar spatial structures into unfamiliar and provoking ones. Two of his newest and most important works show absurd film scenes on a backscreen foregrounded by an actual identical scene: illusion vs. reality. Mik's grotesque, amusing, and at the same time serious films deal with the behavior of people in a group, highlighting their actions, interactions, and reactions.
