A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went to visit one of my fave museums in my country: De Pont in Tilburg. The exposition from Ann Veronica Janssens just had opened but I already heard good stories about it. A perfect excuse to visit this inspiring modern art place again.
The work of Ann Veronica Janssens is all about light, color and space. She creates true magic with her sculptures and installations, making the invisible visible. I love how her work interacts with her audience, so you even become part of the artwork yourself.
For me, the highlight of the exposition is Ann’s ‘white cube’ experience. It’s a cube filled with mist, which you can enter and explore. Okay, what’s so special about it you must think. It’s the way Ann uses the presence of different lights, which makes you disorientate completely. It was a real challenge to find the walls of the cube, and I even started to think if I was all alone in there (there are only 5 people allowed at the same time). Confession: I asked my boyfriend to hold my hand, as I was scared to get lost. It’s only a small cube, but once you step inside you enter a whole different world. Ann knows how to test your senses and pushes you to find out what you really see.
You can visit the exposition of Ann Veronica Janssens until the 31st of March, alongside other very cool exhibitions including works from Anne & Patrick Poirier and Michaël de Kok.
