Mik's installations often invade the physical space of the gallery. In one of his most recent works, Parallel Corner (2003), multiple viewpoints are projected onto a series of four consecutive screens to create the impression of a real event in real space.
All screens depict the same situation, but seen from a slightly different perspective, thus revealing the activity that takes place beyond each camera frame. The work attempts to disclose the situation as a whole, but in fact exposes the ambiguous relations between an event and its mediation.
