PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Gilta Jansen

Take what you want and leave the rest
Gilta Jansen’s installations and settings seem to tell a story, while also puzzling us. The artist transforms found objects – natural and artificial ones – into landscape installations. Glittering foil, wooden and metallic objects, paper and plastic are combined in exciting relationships. Natural associations such as memories are summoned up, giving rise to moments that can be both familiar and disconcerting . This publication features new works, created for the art prize show at Kunstverein Springhornhof, and other work since 2009.
