Beatrice Jansen (1980)
In her series An illusion of the cityperson Beatrice Jansen shows the desire of citypeople to compensate the loss of the disappearing nature. An artificial nature replaces real nature more and more: a radio tower that looks like a tree and a forest printed on wallpaper that covers the walls of a room. This way nature changes into a consumption need of the people, says Beatrice. People decide when, where and how to use 'nature'. Beatrice graduated only recently at the Royal School of Arts in Den Haag. Nevertheless her work carries a distinct signature in which her background as a movie property man becomes clear. Beatrice as been asked to show her work at different exhibitions.
