Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven (also known as AMVK) is an artist of singular complexity. Born in 1951 in Antwerp, where she still lives and works, she has been active since the 1970s as a visual artist, graphic designer and performer. She has always been a pioneer. She should, first and foremost, be considered an artist for the future. AMVK’s practice is truly interdisciplinary.

M HKA wants to introduce Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven to a wider audience as an innovator of forms and interpreter of moods - as oxygen of the whole society.

"Colors, shapes and numbers slowly change, transform, according to a fixed pattern. While the sound gets slower and slower, more abstract. The discrepancy between the two movements, the movement of the images and the movement of the sound, creates tranquility and detachment. The experience is an anti-pole of negativeness in melancholy.

The here and now only gets filled up with the sole existence of being, creative lust gradually changing into the cosmic nothing. No more craving, no more nostalgia, no more ego. Just being, harmony: an erotic blend with reality.

The soundscape is a collage between the first tones of a science-fiction-film and noises from autonomous intelligent robots, bumping into each other and the walls, to become even more intelligent."
