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.

This video is part of the total project “Title Safe”, originated by Walter Verdin.  Walter Verdin asked some collegues-videomakers (BAdrienne Altenhaus, Christel Coppens, Maïder Fortuné, Jo Huybrechts, Octavio Iturbe, Frank Theys, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven & Francis Vranckx ) to make a short video for the creation of TITLE SAFE. There is no fixed theme; the artists can work autonomously according to some simple rythmic and technical editing rules. The videos are shown one after the other as strophes of a long musical composition and interchanged with a musical theme (chorus) which Verdin composes and plays with various live musicians. The beat is fixed and is the only reference: 125 BPM, or 12 frames per beat.
