ELSEWHERE: Aernout Mik's solo exhibition at , opens on Thursday, 7 July 2022.
The SCHIRN is presenting Aernout Mik’s video installation "Double Bind" (2018), as well as the work "Threshold Barriers" (2022), which was conceived specially for the exhibition. Both works pursue the notions and dynamics of security and threat, power and powerlessness in public space and enter into dialogue with each other at the SCHIRN.
In "Double Bind" (shown here), the artist addresses the presence of armed units from the national security apparatus. They move around the city in apparent isolation and without direct contact to passersby.
