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.

(Adam or Eve in Paradise - B)

"On the incestuous gesture of the hero as an androgynous larva, craving a return to our mum by sad penetration, a casual Dance of Death performed in a twilit room, a calm plain alike, the worship kept silent, drowned out by masked gossipers, ashamed of the song of the caressing black, old electric carnival which once provoked silence, until the tourist pleases himself into a skin of hiss, in mono."
