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.

° 1972

Born in Sint-Truiden (BE), lives in Mons (BE).

Gert Robijns makes sculptures, videos and installations. He is interested in the functional yet mondaine aesthetics of the everyday – an inspiration for his playful installations and surreal interventions.

Robijns' works draw the viewer's attention to aspects of perception and intuition, phenomena he wants to call into question. He wishes to capture elusive and fleeting experiences: the buzz of a mosquito, a falling tree, a mouse streaking by,... The starting point is the banality of ordinary motives and movements. Robijns wants to register the moments of wonder or reflection these small details evoke.

His work balances between reality and illusion. He plays with the visible and the invisible, with past and present, with here and elsewhere. With a short, intense moment, he creates a whole world. His works are not statements but suggestions.
