Magic Mirror Steel Blue

Ann Veronica Janssens


Sculpture, 220 x 110 x 1.8 cm .
Materials: dichroic laminated glass consisting of crash glass, float and gelatin filters

Collection: Stad Antwerpen, in langdurige bruikleen in M HKA (Inv. no. SCA0065).

The works of Ann Veronica Janssens (b. 1956, Folkestone, United Kingdom) are total experiences that completely alter the perception of space. Magic Mirror Steel Blue consists of three layers of glass. A plate that has been broken into numerous pieces is sandwiched between two intact plates. When light hits the surface, the cracked glass reflects the light in different directions, creating different shapes and colours, which change depending on how the viewer moves around the piece. The work asks what is the essence of art: its materiality or its interaction with the world?

Ann Veronica Janssens is represented by gallery Micheline Szwajcer.
