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.

- If Language Substitutes the Title -, 2011-2013

Installation, variable dimensions.

Collection: Courtesy Honoré δ'O.

For this exhibition, Honoré δ'O creates a mural drawing where he accords a prominent role to the material usually hidden away under a layer of plaster: grey PVC pipes. Not only does he liberate this material from its invisible position, he also redeems it from its limited function. Suddenly the material acquires unexpected, elegant characteristics, and a new form of writing comes into being.

Whereas on first sight his installations often seem like a disorderly amalgam of materials, on closer inspection we see that they are full of well-considered compositions and that there is an ordered chaos to be found in the details. The same elements often recur in different combinations as well.

The art practice of Honoré δ'O is not ponderous; rather it is light-footed and playfully subversive. As visitors, we are invited to play along with his game, and to free ourselves from habitual conventions of seeing too. Honoré δ'O activates our gaze: you can look at the work from various points of view, and along with a changing perspective, this invariably generates new meanings.
