Exploring light and colour with an invasion of coloured mist. Colour is caught in a state of suspension, obscuring any detail of surface or depth. Instead, attention is focussed on the process of perception itself. Janssens’s work is both disorienting and uplifting as the daily wonder of conscious experience is given renewed emphasis.
The installation is deliberately disorientating with very limited visibility. Excellent for Instagram pics!

An exhibition of erotic Japanese paintings and drawings that venerated the joyful union of the sexes.
Shunga (spring pictures) was an important aspect of Japanese culture dating back to the seventh-century. Many of the images depicted couples making love, and there was often a humorous aspect to the narrative with the unsuspecting couple being surprised in the act.
Shunga was at its most prolific in the eighteenth-century, when artists like Harunobu were churning out as many Shunga paintings as landscapes. While in the nineteenth-century Hokusai, celebrated in the west for his minimal depictions of Japan, was a prolific Shunga painter. This exhibition seeks to reveal, through Shunga pictures, the social and cultural world of Japan through the ages.
