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.

"This is a digital portrait of a friend. 120 colour variations of one face were archived in the memory, one van call any of them by touching the computer screen. The variations appear at random.

When one touches the eyes, the colours become more bright, when one touches the mouth the computer speaks to you. More interactions are planned, depending on forthcoming contact with Patrice herself. Patrice Toye makes movies."
