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: Private Collection Milan (Inv. no. WV13).

This is the third work from the 1960s, following on from the crocodiles and the ducks, that refers to Panamarenko’s fascination with animals. The whale we see here testifies to the young artist’s desire to use new materials to make an entirely individual, almost abstract sculpture. The simplicity of materials and form, meanwhile, shows immense aesthetic refinement. The angular form – at once both robust and elegant – later gave Panamarenko the idea of constructing ΠAHAMA Nova Zemblaya based on the morphology of this early Whale.
