THE END OF AN INVESTIGATION / LET ME BEGIN / TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE APPEAL OF SCIENTIFIC REALISM / IN WORKING MY WAY THROUGH […]. Quote from the work “Reflections Going Down with the Sun,” 2013.

Taking a look at a text fragment chosen by Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven (AMVK) in one of her works, is an attempt – doomed to failure – to come close to an understanding of the fundamentally unsubsumable nature of her artistic modes of expression. „In working my way through [the investigation]“, precisely this fragment of a passage is what arouses my interest today. In the past, AMVK‘s work has been dissected, examined and categorised from numerous angles, mostly from a bird‘s eye view. The explanations of content (technological-digital impetus, mysticism and female intelligence, Leibnizian refraction of nature to mathematical logic, neuroscientific machine knowledge) and methods (Eisenstein-filmic and medieval dissolution of linearities, excessive demand strategies, narratives of literary cut-ups and fold-ins of Burroughs and Gysins) helped us to gain a more comprehensive understanding of this extraordinary work. It encompasses all media of art and knows how to draw on the wealth of the historical and contemporary world of knowledge. Excessive demand and complexity are not only inherent in this work, but are also part of today‘s world. It is not in vain that AMVK‘s œuvre to date has always been recognized as an early foresight of the subsequent states of the world.
