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.

Super Model (Female), 1994

Painting, 83 x 76.9 cm.


Collection: Courtesy Rennie Collection, Vancouver.

Super Model (Female) (1994), a portrait of a nude woman in three-quarter profile from the waist, harks back to early-Renaissance style portraits. The golden aureola above and around her head are influenced by Byzantine iconography. Above, to the right, are three names in pencil under each other – “Linda, Cindy and Naomi” - referring to the eponymous supermodels. Here, Marshall calls into question our society's obsession with fame and beauty. He trades the Madonna figure for Linda, Cindy and Naomi, who have become contemporary icons. With this painting, Marshall aims to subtly undermine our culture of idolatry and idealism.
