Confuse your senses at Ann Veronica Janssens’ States Of Mind installation yellowbluepink

Walk through a room of coloured mist at Ann Veronica Janssens’ yellowbluepink installation

Currently on at the Wellcome Collection is a new installation from Brussels-based artist Ann Veronica Janssens. She has transformed a white gallery into a disorienting space filled with light and colour. Entitled yellowbluepink for the States Of Mind exhibition, the new installation features a dense mist with different colours. As only a limited amount of people can enter at one time, queues are likely. My friend and I waited for about 75 minutes during our Saturday visit, but fortunately there were benches along the way. You are instructed to walk slowly and carefully around the room as the thick mist means you can only see about a metre or so in front of you. Entering the room, you find your senses compromised, with my sight restricted and my over-reliance on touch and hearing to guide me around without bumping into people or walls. It was a surreal and bizarre experience, but I found the mist changing colour as you moved under the different lights very pretty. My friend and I really enjoyed it and found it was worth the queue. Check it out before it ends in a few weeks.

  • Yellowbluepink is on now until 3 January 2016 at the Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, NW1 2BE. Nearest station: Euston or Euston Square. Free entry, but queuing is likely. For more information, visit the Wellcome Collection website.
