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.

"An image of Rubens’s Assumption of the Virgin Mary, as it hangs and as I have seen it for a long time hanging in my former parish church, St. Augustine in Antwerp. I added a dimension that refers to a book in which Leviathan, a type of sea monster from the Hebrew Bible and in fact a terrifying depiction of Satan, is used to describe an emerging economic system in 1651."
