Ann Veronica Janssens

Biographie

Ann Veronica Janssens was born in Folkestone, Great Britain in 1956. The artist is occupied with incidental manifestations of light and movement phenomena, which she captures in videos, photographs, and installations. When viewing her works, which are comparable to lab situations, visitors are referred back to the experiment, the physical phenomenon, but also to the process of perception, one’s own interaction in space. Janssens has had numerous solo exhibitions, for example, at MuHKA, Antwerp (1997), the Neuen Nationalgalerie, Berlin, Kunstverein München (2001), Kunsthalle Bern, and CCA, San Francisco (2003), and Wiels in Brussels (2009). She participated in the 5th Istanbul Biennial (1997), Manifesta 8 (2010), and the Sydney Biennial (1998, 2012). Together with Michel Francois she represented the Belgian pavilion at the 48th Venice Biennial (1999). The artist lives and works in Brussels.
