Edited by Laurence Kardish. With contributions by Laurence Kardish, Kelly Sidley, and Michael T. Taussig
Published to accompany a retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art's—Aernout Mik's first in the United States—this volume is a vivid exploration of the artist's work and process. Laurence Kardish, former curator in the Museum's Department of Film, discusses the unique creative aspects of Mik's installations, and Michael Taussig, professor of anthropology at Columbia University, investigates how the artist's work changes viewers' perception of reality while reinforcing the norms of visual culture.
Abundantly illustrated with stills and the artist's own drawings, Aernout Mik features detailed descriptions of the installations, an exhibition history, and a bibliography, making it the most comprehensive volume about Mik and his work available in English. Dutch artist Aernout Mik's moving-image installations meld filmmaking, sculpture, and architecture into experiences that are at once compelling, unsettling, peculiar, and plausible. The artist designs and constructs architectural spaces that hold his moving images, making the viewer's physical relationship to his work a critical component. 96 pp.; 57 illus.
