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.

"8 transparent Plexiglass boxes filled with semi-transparent layers of painted elements. Each of them is a work of which the final visual image is arbitrary, the structure within stays loose. Made for my installation in the group exhibition "Vierkant" (Square), curated by Jan Hoet, inspired by the writings of René Descartes and shown at the SMAK in Ghent in 1993." — AMVK
