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. BK5216_M29).

The Kiss from 1986 – with red drapes and a striking bowl, filled with a clear blue liquid – is a conceptual reconstruction of a classic still life. As in almost all of her work, the artist here creates a hybrid of painting and sculpture. The Flemish Primitives of the fifteenth century and the baroque painters of the seventeenth are important sources of inspiration, which is reflected in, among other things, the considerable amount of staging that goes into each of the works. The round shapes of the velvet and the wood are at odds with the strict geometric construction of the black triangle. The confrontation between the hard and soft materials, and the concealing yet simultaneously revealing character of the red velvet give the work a romantic tension reminiscent of that between Eros and Thanatos.
