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.

"I scan different pages from a magazine and start working with them, I add texts until I have a perfect image on my computer, usually about a size of one to two meters. Then I start to disassemble it. I print the different parts in a factory, on different sheets of Plexiglas, and paint them some more, which changes the meaning of the colours and shapes. The rear surface mirrors, so that all aspects of the different layers can enter the game."
