statement

Having a migrational history that began when her Armenian family escaped the Genocide in Armenia 100 years ago to flee to Bulgaria and halted when her mother settled with her in Germany, Beatrice's work is situated within the concept of migration. Meaning not neccessarily is it people that are migrating or fleeing in her work, but ideas. Forceful migration that is doomed to leave behind all that connected an individual to ones past has the potential to create a vacuum of neither here nor there, a liminal state that is difficult to escape, for generations to come. Beatrice is rebuilding 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, buildings and spaces. 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.
