about this work
Ann Veronica Janssens’ practice explores ideas around perception, transparency and the play of light. The edition is a series of photos showing pink trails produced by clouds of water vapour that reflect the light of the setting sun into a celestial expanse. These artificial clouds are the byproduct of the movement of aeroplanes through the sky. The photos are printed on a glossy paper that partially reflects the surroundings of the edition, and are placed randomly on an aluminium shelf.
about Ann Veronica Janssens
Since the mid-1980s, Ann Veronica Janssens is developing an experimental body of work – both visual and sensory – intended to destabilize our perception of space and make light no longer an instrument but an actual subject. Through in situ installations and the use of simple or intangible materials, such as light, sound or artificial fog, and transparent elements such as glass and reflecting elements such as mirrors, the viewer is confronted with the perception of the elusive and a fleeting experience that crosses the threshold of a clear and controlled vision.
Janssens’s works are not attached to any form of monumentality; on the contrary, the means and forms are minimal, at the service of a poetic oeuvre, playing on the boundary between the visible and the invisible.
