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.

"Woman leaning back changes colors slowly, which gives the image an aspect of certain periods of time in art history. Abstract forms come and go like thoughts. The motionless figure relates to the abstract, like colours relate to the giving of a meaning of the image.

The sound is "distorted Webern", a soundimpression of Webern's music on a worn out tape-recorder in my painting studio."
