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.

Biblimlen explores a series of performances – which are strung together cinematographically – the ways in which people interact with their everyday environment, which is both unique and passing. Often with little or no attention to detail, any possibility for something new or different is completely overlooked.

The performances take place in the Russian State Library, which becomes a co-author of the work. The unique atmosphere and shape of the building is closely linked to the strict rules of conduct that apply there. The work departs from common scenarios that contradict the restrictions of this strictly regulated environment.

Pirogova lets human bodies perform a surprising dance with the library's knowledge system. She shows unsuspected qualities and possible experiences in a system striving for uniformity. It's our movements that bring livability, enjoyment and depth. The real and the surreal come together; the characters are enchanted by the building and remain in an endless conversation with space.
