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.

This series of three paintings by Marthe Wéry form a single entity with the wall. Marthe Wéry plays with the boundary of the painting: where does the work begin and end? She examines the relationship between the frame and the picture plane and their mutual interchangeability. In this way the painting also becomes an installation, and is inseparable from the space between and around it. A painting becomes an object and enters into dialogue with the space where it is exhibited. Marthe Wéry sees each work as another step in her continuing study of painting. Originally, in her monochrome works, she concentrated mainly on investigating the basic components of painting: support, format, colour and brushwork. She asks the question ‘what makes something a painting?’ She later shifted her attention to the relationship between her work and the surroundings. Click [here] to read the full text.
