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.

In his three-dimensional monochrome paintings, the Italian artist Ettore Spalletti combines a discrete range of colours, mainly in pastel shades, with an almost tactile sensuality. Paradoxically enough, however, it is strictly forbidden to touch them; they are after all fragile works built up by using many layers of pigment. In addition to its atmospheric quality, Painting, Yellow Air, a gold-yellow triptych, also has unmistakable sculptural properties: the middle canvas (apparently distanced from the wall by a white coloured pencil), which leaps forth out of its frame, breaks the uniform plane of Spalletti’s contemplative mural and introduces a certain element of disruption and spatial disorientation.
