Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven is an artist. It’s a scientific fact. In 2009, she was a test subject in a study conducted by researchers in Leuven, Belgium. They proved that her brain works differently. It lights up entirely, with all parts of her brain firing simultaneously.
In other words, being an artist was never a choice for Van Kerckhoven. It’s a hard-wired condition, not a profession. For more than 40 years, her artistic practice has offered her a personal survival mechanism – a filter for processing her experience of life on earth, and for constructing its alternatives.
