Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven

In A Saturnian World
September 25 – December 18, 2011

Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven
Je Vous Attends, 2011
Van Kerckhoven?s artistic output includes a diverse array of mediums including painting, drawing, collage, computer animation, installation, and zines. Van Kerkhoven synthesizes disparate visual and textual elements in her work. Her illustrational technique favors hard-edged flat planes in a neon RGB palette, with her most common imagery being drawn from pre- sexual revolution soft pornography. She appropriates text from a range of discourses, including philosophy, science, poetry, theology. Her work addresses metaphysical reflections on mind, body, universe, and perception.

The Renaissance Society will present four new bodies of work, including numerous new works on paper; an interactive computer animation; and a related series of computer generated prints. The new work will be supplemented with selections of work from throughout her career.

Pluriform I and Pluriform II are interactive animations that can be accessed on-line. Developed in Quicktime VR, Pluriform I and II are a based on a suite of drawings and collages the artist has translated into a spatialized realm she refers to as a mind map.
