Forty years ago, Belgian artist Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven (b. 1951) wandered into a new Antwerp gallery called Zeno X. By the time she had left, her first solo exhibition was on the books.
During the decades since, the artist has continued working with Zeno X, showing works that explore cliched depictions of female nudes and socio-political shifts related to changing technologies.
Now, to mark those four decades of collaboration, Zeno X Gallery is hosting the exhibition “Placenta Saturnine Bercail,” which brings together historical and new works by Van Kerckhoven that illustrate the arc of her career. A substantial publication overview of all her exhibitions in the gallery with images from the archive will be released to coincide with this exhibition.
