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.

Mon Chalet [My Chalet], 1987

Installation, 310 x 310 x 230 cm.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK6054_M114).

Mon Chalet is the first work that Guillaume Bijl realized in the series 'Situation-Installations' intended for the open air. It is a pre-fab chalet with typical furnishings. Guillaume Bijl calls his 'Situation-Installations' ‘a non-reality within a reality’. These are small, image-disturbing interventions in the everyday environment – or, in the present case, in the museum space. With the installation Mon Chalet, Bijl creates a new reality which vis-à-vis true reality comes over as absurdist and surreal. He makes it clear that art resides in a domain that falls between reality and fiction and, by definition, contains an estranging dimension.
