Bortolami is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of Ann Veronica Janssens, coinciding with her show at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas. Using light as her primary material, Janssens manipulates negative spaces to create interactive experiences. Sharing similar concerns with Light and Space artists (like sensory phenomena, translucence, and ambience), Janssens focuses on challenging viewers’ percep- tions. Her luminous installations create gradient zones between light and shadow, and opacity and transparency.
