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.

Sigefride Bruna Hautman

Annoniem female

° 1955

Sigefride Bruna Hautman (°1955) is an arresting figure in the Flemish art scene in the early eighties with the emergence of a new form of figurative art. Her focus lay on sculpture, freestanding sculptures and reliefs, and poetic reflections on paper, often in English and illustrated with speech balloons, eye-catching headings and captions.

Her work is hermetic and difficult to pin down, and yet it communicates well. Its content bursting with spiritual imagery, most evident in her written work, but also appearing in her expressive works of art. Her oeuvre unites word, image and painting, without the intent of abolishing the boundaries dividing them: each of the forms co-exists with the other, giving rise to a poetic unity. Her sculptures and images give the impression of being thoughts which have solidified into clay or plaster, with poetry broken up into fragments, like wisps of a dream, blossoming from the subconscious. Figuratively speaking, her work remains only partially legible and draws on recurring symbolic images: leaping figures, masks, urns, eyes, plants and waves of water. All is sculpted, cast, drawn or engraved. Associations with cosmology (earth, fire, water, air) are conjured up, and become an invitation to psychoanalysis; yet with every rational revelation new questions are raised imbuing these manifestations with a mythic character, inundated with the cryptic and unexplained.
