The artistic technique of Ann Veronica Janssens, a Belgian visual artist, could be defined as an exploration of the sensory experience of reality.
Through various media (installations, projections, immersive environments, urban interventions, sculptures), Ann Veronica Janssens invites the viewer to cross into a new sensory space on the borderline of dizziness and dazzlement. In a register inspired by cognitive processes (perception, sensation, memory, representation), her works tend towards minimalism, emphasising the fleeting, ephemeral and fragile nature of the environments she invites us to enter.

The organisation of space and the diffusion of light, radiant colour, stroboscopic impulses, artificial mists and reflective or translucent surfaces all serve to reveal the instability of our perception of time and space. Properties of materials (gloss, lightness, transparency, fluidity) and physical phenomena (reflection, refraction, perspective, balance, waves) are rigorously examined here for their ability to destabilise the very concept of materiality.

In her desire to create a dialogue with Monet’s work, the artist will create a specific luminous immersive environment for the exhibition space in the Musée de l’Orangerie. "I am interested in what eludes me, not in order to prevent it escaping but, on the contrary, to experiment with the “ungraspable”. There are few objects in my work. Engaged gestures and the loss of control that are fully assumed and proposed as an active experience: my way of proceeding consists of such loss of control, the absence of overbearing materiality, the attempt to escape from the tyranny of objects." Ann Veronica Janssens, 2004
