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.

"Le Paon consists of a collage and the animation of a short musical transmission by France 3 in 1992. A female singer renders the song of “Le Paon” by Debussy.  The piece is about a proud peacock, a man who stands by the church every day, waiting in vain for his bride, without ever losing his courage."


Sound: song Le Paon, composed by Debussy
