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.

"The film uses a distorted fragment from Michelangelo Antonioni’s classic film L’Eclisse, 1962, in which the actress Monica Vitti turns her back t the camera. The contrast in the images is exaggerated, which appears to exorcise the protagonists. Vitti’s opponent in the film, Alain Delon, becomes an almost unrecognisable shadow in a layered sequence in which close-ups of a fish is the most impressive footage. Now and then, there are moments of obstruction, in which a void occurs."
