“Each age has its landscape paintings. The paintings of Nanna Lahn are landscapes of the generation x. Filled with logos of commercial products, signs and trademarks. 

The paintings evoke questions about the growing conglomerate colonisation of nature, the ownership of public room in general and of images in particular.”
