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.

(To Know, To Dare, To Want, To Be Silent)

"A series of four paintings on plastic trays for game pâté. These are the steps that a wise person must remember if he wants to get to the elaboration of an important insight. The point is that, after one has formulated an intention for oneself, it is best to remain silent, and to execute it. These four normally hang in my studio as a warning to myself."
