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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK6078).

Lost space refers to individual works as well as to a bigger ensemble of works by Mees. They are divided in two groups: firstly, a group of works made with lace – at times also combined with neon lights -, made between 1960 and 1966. And secondly, still under the same title, works made in the eighties, made with colour paper pinned to the wall as relief’s. The 'lost space' from the title is that of the painting. It is a space which does not exist anymore, disintegrated to make place for a new kind of space. Mees’ works leave the wall and dialogue with their surroundings, as if they could emphasize the wall which is left behind.
