Exhibitions & Art, Installation.

Belgian artist Ann Veronica Janssens (b. 1956) has created an extensive body of work over four decades spanning installations, projections, immersive environments and sculptures. At the core of her practice is an interest in light and its impact on our perception and experience. This exhibition will be the first major presentation of Janssens' work in London. Janssens' Untitled (Blue Glitter), an expanse of reflective, blue glitter scattered across the floor of the gallery, will occupy the Main Space for the first half of the show, after which it will be replaced by Janssens' reflective wheeled Bikes, 2001. Visitors are invited to cycle round the Main Gallery on one of five custom-made bicycles with mirrored wheels, which will reflect light on the surrounding gallery walls and floor as the wheels turn. Across three floors of the Fire Station, sculptures, projections, light works and installations continue Janssens' exploration of perception and ephemerality.
