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 two screens up, mirrored, is called an altar and is a perpetual sediment  of  bipartition, perspective, computer-drawings and exorcised rituals. The drawings show the hotelcastle of my grandparents, a black sun, a female breast, time-measurement and colors. The castle is personal history and the dancer is Marc Vanrunxt."
