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.

Honoré δ'O

° 1961

Lives in Ghent (), born in Oudenaarde ().

The oeuvre van Honoré δ'O consists of sculptures, assemblages and chain-reactions. It is many-facetted to say the least, and always in motion. The artist was born in 1961 as Raf Van Ommeslaege and reborn in 1984 in Ghent as Honoré δ'O. This rebirth and choice of artist’s name is connected to his take on art and life which, according to him, are interchangeable. Honoré δ'O settles scores with the static nature of art. His art works are dynamic and know no definitive form – they are always in movement. The everyday objects and materials that he uses continually change, split and multiply in an endless variety of ways. Here the details are certainly as interesting as the whole. At first sight his installations indeed look like a disordered multiplicity of materials, but on closer view you see that it’s full of considered compositions and that the details contain an ordered chaos. The same elements also return in different combinations. Honoré δ'O’s art is not ponderous, but light-footed and playful. We are always invited to play along and become part of the composition. Because of the size of his installations, the visitor can contemplate it from different viewpoints and discover new meanings.
