M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte 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.

Yesterday's Snow/Schnee von gestern, 2018

Installation

Collection: M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK008363).

The title of Irina Korina’s large-scale installation refers to bygone: things and events of the past that are no longer to be regarded as important. Consisting of huge and bright inflatable objects, this simulacrum landscape resembles both the pastoral nature of Austria and Russia. The idealized images of birch groves, golden rye, and other recognized attributes of a patriotic and poetic depiction of homeland, are adjoined with less appealing piles of dirt-tinged snow. Hanged among the flickering trunks of trees, a billboard sign reads “Vorgestern” (“The day before yesterday”), typed in the eerie Gothic typeface.  Imitating the advertising mechanism and referring to traditional symbols of patriotism, Yesterday's snow can be regarded as a reflection on the mechanisms of nationalist representation.
