Ann Veronica Janssens - Untitled (White Glitter), 2016

At the Punta della Dogana Ann Veronica Janssens' work, which consists of a dusting of glitter on the floor, questions the nature of light and its materiality. A body without a body, this at once indistinct and specific form seems, depending on the direction of the light, to float, move and change on the surface of the ground. In this way Ann Veronica Janssens shows us the instability of reality and the impossibility of defining the world around us with certainty and in an irrevocable way. She takes us to the heart of complex phenomena of perception where sensation, imagination, and memory are combined.
