Ann Veronica Janssens

Year and place of birth: 1956, Folkestone, United Kingdom Location: Brussels, Belgium

Since the early 1990s, Belgian artist Ann Veronica Janssens has explored the possibilities of the art of sculpture. She applies intangible phenomena such as light, colour and sound, to develop new forms of perception. In the process she attaches greater importance to the physical-sensory effect of her sculptures than to their actual forms. The atypical, ephemeral materials Janssens uses allow her to manipulate us more easily in sensory and optical terms. The play on space and our gaze has become increasingly important and more refined over the course of her career.
