MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE
ANN VERONICA JANSSENS
art

Growing up in Kinshasa, Ann Veronica Janssens would often watch the sunset and sunrise, specifically the deep shades of violets, yellows, pinks and reds that swept across the sky, over the nearby mountains. She left the Congo aged 13 but five decades later, the intensity of those colours and perspectives are still woven throughout the Belgian artist’s immersive sculptural works, whether rainbow-coloured, annealed- glass panels, prism-like aquariums or installations of light and colours projected into a space.

“I’M INTERESTED IN SERENDIPITY, THAT IS A BIG PART OF MY WORK. JUST BY CHANCE, TO LOOK AROUND ME OR TO READ SOMETHING, AND THEN TO START TO DEVELOP SOMETHING WHICH COULD BE INTERESTING.”

This interview is featured in Ark Journal VOL III along with a 16-page portfolio of Ann Veronica Janssens’ artworks.  In partnership with Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
