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.

Robert Devriendt

° 1955

Lives in Brugge (Belgium), works in Zwevezele (Belgium).

Robert Devriendt (b. 1955) is known for his meticulous small paintings. With a keen eye for detail, for tactile rendering and with a refined technique, he investigates how images work and how they come to be interpreted. He presents his work as filmic sequences in small series. The connection between the different paintings is never straightforward. It is only upon close inspection, and when we compare them and dare to associate freely, that the sequences reveal what we assume as their 'meaning'. With a typically photographic gaze, Devriendt paints from different camera angles (from panorama to close-up), depicting fragmentary representations of landscapes, persons, animals and objects.
