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.

Literary synopsis

Merging the lives of brain-damaged Phineas Gage and eccentric-sociopath John Samuelson, this novella tells an epic story full of vain hopes, unjustified anger and freaky whims, in the middle of the Mojave Desert.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

Un Trou Célebre is the result of an artist residency at the Centre for Affective Sciences and Geneva Neuroscience Centre. It shares influences (stone carving, Neuroscience) with other artworks by Jérémie Gindre of the same period.
