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.

"I tried to evoke the withdrawn but upbeat atmosphere of the early 1960s, when I was becoming a teenager: one of latent aggressiveness, threat and imminent change. I made a collage with the video clip for Serge Gainsbourg’s song Les YéYé, 1962, and the interior of the house that the exiled Hungarian architect Marcel Brauer built for himself in the US. Where the Frenchman sings about Lolita and Sing Sing, Brauer adapted central European aesthetics to American high society. The overall relationship between consciousness and place has been schismatic since the Second World War."
