Ann Veronica Janssens

안 베로니카 얀센스

Ann Veronica Janssens was born in 1956 in Folkestone, England. She studied at L’École de la Cambre in Brussels. The artist lives and works in Brussels.

Janssens’ work foregrounds the body’s perception of the world and itself in it. She often uses light, natural optical phenomena or glass as a medium. Produced with great care, her works exude the impression of great simplicity yet create vivid experiences of the act of seeing, evoking a heightened awareness of the changeability and fleetingness of individual perception. Her contribution to the 48th Venice Biennale (1999), where she represented Belgium with Michel François filled the space with thick mist that served to disorient the viewers. In 2013, she added colorful glass monoliths to the windows of the Chapelle Saint-Vincent de Grignan in Provence, transforming the interior space into a constantly changing color environment.
