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 installation that gives every 15 minutes an image of the relative power-unfolding during the struggle between now, its past and the future. It is a video-clock that ticks on the rhythm of eternity, examining the powers of cycles and numbers through contact of exact time-measurement with the hidden values that procure evolution and devolution. It is a cyclic rotation, founded on the  4 fundamental symbols which are the circle, the cross, the square and the center."
