Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven (born 5 December, 1951) is a Belgian artist whose work involves painting, drawing, computer art and video art.

Biography[edit]

Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven (also known as AMVK) was born in Antwerp and lives in Antwerp and Berlin. In 1981 she founded the noise band Club Moral with Danny Devos. Since 1982 she has been represented by Zeno X Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium, and since 1999 by Galerie Barbara Thumm in Berlin. In 2003 she was awarded the Flanders' Prize for Visual Arts.[1]

In 2005 the HeadNurse-files was published. By means of installation shots, film stills and artistic images, this book presents an overview of the projects' development from 1995 to 2004 and possibly beyond.[2] In 2006 she was awarded a DAAD stipendium to spend one year in Berlin.[3] In 2022 she will receive an honorary doctor degree from the University of Antwerp.[4]

Life and work[edit]

Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven has been fascinated for a long time with the representation in the mass media of images of women, of interiors, of the kinetic powers of any kind of language. She investigates supra-moral connections in contemporary society between sex and technology. Her work connects different knowledge systems, explores the areas of the unconscious, and looks at moral aberrations or the obscene from a female point of view.

Since 2005 she has been working on a conceptual and pictorial trialogue between the mystic Marguerite Porete, the hermetic Giordano Bruno and the philosopher Herbert Marcuse.
