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.

The anthropomorphic shapes of Evgeny Antufiev are compilations of organic and inorganic material, including fabric, wire, wolves’ teeth and metal. With the attitude of a skilled craftsman and that of an overzealous ethnographer, Antufiev draws his inspiration from fairy tales, mythology, science fiction stories and historical sources. The shapes are characterized by a certain duality: they can be both lovely and frightening and appear to be the brainchild of a Siberian shaman.

For Antufiev, a work of art functions as a mirror: as a catalyst of memories, thoughts and emotions, in which we are faced with ourselves, our identity and our origin. His works thematise the possible relationships between contemporary art and ancient art, between art and nature, between collective memory and individual identity or between art and time. Antufiev reflects on the ability of artworks to lead us to a dimension where life and death coexist.
