The Renaissance Society

September 25, 2011
Artist talk with Associate Curator and Director of Education, Hamza Walker

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.
