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 criterium of substance is its activity: impression of young man on roof, march 1999.

Equation: Art/Architecture = Cinema/Truth. Using the structure of Baroque music and philosophy, the Barman film was attached to the essence of Leibnizer philosophy: the criterium of substance is its activity, its power.

The alchemist state of this work is situated in the phase of glowing out:  the battle between dark and light, the diagonale. Mixing virtuosity, calculation and emotion."
