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.

Obelisk, 1983

Sculpture, 226 x 91 x 91 cm.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK5218_M31).

In the 1980s, T.O.P.-office – the architecture office of Luc Deleu made six Lego constructions. Each of these structures was assembled from the Lego blocks of the previous: thus only the last construction, Obelisk, still exists as physical object. What remains from the first five is the documentation in the form of a photograph of each, where beneath is written: ‘model demolished’, or in one case ‘model destroyed’, followed by the year it occurred. The two-meter high Obelisk acquires a poetic dimension when it is presented along with the photographs of the previous constructions from out of which it was ‘born’. The Lego constructions of Luc Deleu are not models or maquettes in the literal sense. The objects are not anticipations of an eventual execution ‘for real’. They are the result of a playful exercise on the part of T.O.P.-office: a colorful, alternative approach to the architectural design process.
