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.

"Transparent Plexiglas holders filled with painted semi-transparent plates without a fixed order. Each tray is a work in which the visual image is random, of which the internal structure remains loose, in which all elements form one work, but never in a definite stage. Made for my installation in the group exhibition Vierkant (Square) in 1993, inspired by René Descartes’s scribbles and shown at the S.M.A.K. in Ghent."
