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.

Edith Dekyndt

° 1960

Born in Ypres (BE), based in Brussels (BE), works in Berlin (DE).

Edith Dekyndt observes and highlights the processes of daily life and physical phenomena through a minimalist aesthetic. Her artistic approach is close to the scientific realm, while having a sensitive finality that avoids dryness. Dekyndt's oeuvre reveals poetically what is hardly perceptible, such as dust, moisture, magnetic particles, waves or static electricity, constantly playing with the relationship between the microscopic and the macroscopic. The artist typically uses video as an extension of her sculptural research, creating installations that seek to offer the viewer a singular physical and mental experience, integrated into the exhibition space.

Edith Dekyndt lives and works in Brussels and Berlin. After studying Visual Communication at E.T.H. in Saint-Ghislain, Edith Dekyndt obtained a Master of Visual Arts at the Fine Arts Academy in Mons.1 In 1987, she was granted a scholarship and moved to Italy to conduct research on Pierro della Francesca and his relationship to geometry and light. Dekyndt has held solo exhibitions in numerous museums, institutions, and galleries such as Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels; Bourse du Commerce – Pinault Collection, Paris; Hamburger Kunsthalle; WIELS, Brussels; and the 57th edition of the Venice Biennale, Venice. Her works are part of numerous collections, in Belgium and abroad, including that of MOMA (Museum Of Modern Art), New York.
