Artificial fog, green, yellow, and pink filters

Gazing into the mist in Green, Yellow, Pink is an experience with contrasting effects. It appears to abolish all spatial and temporal markers and the forces specific to a given context. At the same time, however, the installation seems to impart a sense of materiality and tactility to light itself. The experience provokes different reactions: some find it exhilarating, while others might experience dizziness or anxiety. By filling closed spaces with a haze of colored artificial mist, Janssens creates situations that confront visitors with their own perception of space, and of themselves within it.

Rose, 2007
7 light projectors, artificial haze, pink filters
ø 360-400 cm, depth 250 cm

 

Beams of light form a seven-pointed star in Rose, which morphs between palpable geometry and amorphous atmospheric effects as visitors move about the space. Rose is part of Janssens’s Fog Star series, which explores the capacity of haze to give sculptural form to light. Focused on fleeting and intimate experiences of the world, the artist draws viewers’ attention to their own processes of perception within a surrounding environment

CONNECT, BTS is a global initiative developed in collaboration with curators from five major cities—London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul and New York. The ultimate goal of the project is to connect individuals across the world as they reevaluate their present circumstances, attitudes, and potentialities. CONNECT, BTS draws motifs from parts of BTS' philosophy that center around diversity, love and care for the periphery. By connecting with 22 contemporary artists, BTS is creating the opportunity for a fruitful and democratic cross-pollination between the worlds of rarefied visual art and pop music. This project adds support for contemporary art to their practice, setting ground for great new synergies.

 

At Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), a cultural hub conceived by Zaha Hadid in a historic district of Seoul, Ann Veronica Janssens will present two major installations. Green, Yellow and Pink is a mysterious disorienting sensory environment filled with a haze of colored artificial mist. It appears to abolish all spatial and temporal markers and the forces specific to a given context. At the same time, however, the installation seems to impart a sense of materiality and tactility to light itself. Beams of light form a seven-pointed star in Rose, which morphs between palpable geometry and amorphous atmospheric effects as visitors move about the space. Rose is part of Janssens’ Fog Star series, which explores the capacity of haze to give sculptural form to light.
