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.

"Two monitors are placed each at the end of a seven meter long wooden dinner table, that served the banquet business of my family for 50 years. Left you see straight recordings of the sun in windstroken pine trees. The colored oscillation is the result of an automatic, mechanic interference between the sun and the recording equipment. This is altered with a recording of the moon moving towards and from the tower of the church where my parents got married."
