M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

° 1959

The oeuvre of the Dutch artist Fransje Killaars (°1959) is characterised by textiles and their colours. Through accumulations and shading, she composes a setting which presents itself as an immersive experience.

The layered nature of her work is expressed in striking contradictions: Intimacy versus openness, factory textiles in contrast to handmade materials, mass production as opposed to uniqueness, transparency against seclusion, excessiveness in contrast to a minimalistic structure. The artist plays with patterns – striped, plain, chequered or ornamental – on wool, velvet or damask. The bright colour palette contrasts with the rigid presentation and the abstract linear approach.

The end-results of what is usually classified as so-called high and low art, or of good and bad taste, are brought together in her work and are given a new and generous place.
