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.

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK6890_M151).

Chantier, Barrage and Portrait de l’homme de Bessine are three separate works in the collection that, according to Hyber’s express wishes to that effect, have often been shown in varying constellations, allowing for new relationships between the works to emerge time and again. Chantier is one of Hyber’s oldest works, a charcoal drawing cum oil painting in which the artist explores notions of homeliness; Barrage is yet another variation on one of Hyber’s long-standing obsessions – the deep, unshakeable suspicion that the analytical schemata brought into existence to re-present certain real-life situations never quite get the job done. The so-called portrait of the Man from Bessine (a rudimentary pencil drawing on a piece of cardboard), finally, refers to a project realized by Hyber in the French town of Bessine: a public fountain cum sculpture made up of venomous green little men from whose various orifices streams of water pour forth.
