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.

"In a small space of 6m by 5m hung 37 plexi-works by big steel nails; ceiling and walls, thus forming a figured out chaos. The works all had different shapes, they didn’t hung parallel to the wall, and not on a comfortable height to look at. It was almost impossible to look at the works without injuring oneself.

The exposition was a conclusion made by me after reading 2 year-volumes of ‘New Scientist’, older scientific sources, and Wittgenstein."
