This book offers an overview of the long-standing collaboration between the Belgian artist Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven and Zeno X Gallery.

Installation views highlight some of the important museum exhibitions and remarkable projects for which the artist was invited, both at home and abroad. The publication also includes numerous photographs, newspaper clippings, invitation cards and reviews from her extensive archive.
Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven (b. 1951) has been working on a body of work consisting of drawings, paintings, collages, films and installations since the 1980s. She manipulates images depicting women – first manually and later also digitally – in order to question the objectification of women and the prevailing systems of power. In an intuitive and unconventional way, she explores subjects such as science, language and artificial intelligence, creating a universe of her own in which the oppositions between chaos and order, logic and mysticism, eroticism and technology are abolished.
