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.

"From 1995 until 2004 I made numerous HeadNurse exhibitions on a structure that was adaptable to every space given to show my work in. The two or more layered wooden facility made it possible to show works in layers, such as meta-data. All works made on Plexiglass or PVC had magnetic backs and were fixed on iron plates, so that it was very easy to re-position everything."
