Aernout Mik

Aernout Mik’s film installations create situations that chart the formation and transformation of group behavior. The artist draws parallels between structures like religious movements and our belief in the market economy to create spaces for the viewer to contemplate their position between malfunctioning systems. Mik (b. 1962, Gronigen) lives and works in Amsterdam. He represented the Netherlands in the Dutch Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007.

Mik’s recent solo exhibitions include Parallelities, Art Sonje Center, Seoul; Cardboard Walls, BAK Utrecht; Global Prayers, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Communitas, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Jeu de Paume, Paris, and Museum Folkwang, Essen; and Aernout Mik, CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid. Mik has participated in numerous international biennials, including the Venice Biennale, Sao Paulo Biennial, Tirana Biennale, Israel Biennial, Istanbul Biennial, and the Berlin Biennale.
