statement

Beatrice's work is situated within the concept of migration of ideas. For instance, taking the figurative supporting structure from one concept and applying it to another one. Her growing up and familial history is permeated by displacement and the recurring creation of double identities. Borne from an Armenian perspective in her homecountry Germany she is ultimately interested in how societies are shaped by enormous intra-generational upheaval processes and significant shifts. With this background, Beatrice is attempting to rebuild a fragmented past and is looking in music, psychology, education, cinema and architecture for the kinds of structures that will help support new narratives, identities and architecture in the broadest sense. Beatrice works with an incomplete set of puzzle pieces that do not fit, but within her practice she makes them fit, however not alone. Art is not a singular event, or a lonely effort, it is a lot about working together, organizing and narrating.
