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.

Arrows is one of a series of animated films shown during Suchan Kinoshita’s first solo exhibition at the M HKA in 2002. The series explored and staged to show the porous boundaries between dream, reality and narrative. Arrows is no exception, presenting us with this sort of poetic and highly visual interplay. Before her career as an artist, Kinoshita, the child of a German mother and Japanese father, worked in the theatre as actor, director and set builder. These experiences informed her views, as an artist, on the role of the spectator as an active observer and the multiple and individual interpretation of a work of art. Kunoshita’s works of art unfold in the course of time, as dynamic processes in which the personal relationship between the spectator and the work take shape. The place and time of the presentation play an important part. As far as she is concerned, static depictions and representations of ‘something else’ are only a distraction. So the starting point here is not any complicated figuration or abstraction, but a recognisable and simple thing – an arrow. Kinoshita very deliberately focuses our attention on this everyday object in a public place, in this case a museum. The polystyrene background, which acts as a projection screen, reinforces this visual simplicity and gives the whole thing a more architectural dimension.
