WAITING ROOMS

2018 - 2021


Waiting rooms


Under the heading of "Waiting rooms," Boulet creates customized installations. These are often works of art that have a direct link with the space in which they are displayed (art historical, formal or associative) or that interact with the theme or concept of an exhibition. Despite the fact that these installations often have a visually monumental character, they convey an atmosphere of stillness. Always referring to the idea of paradise, they are images that evoke dreams, daydreams or reflection (in music comparable to ambient, such as Brian Eno's albums 'Music for Installations' or 'Music for airports'). They seem to be fragments, decors in which time stands still for a moment, waiting for the action that is yet to come.

The site-specific installations are often constructed from everyday objects, toys, fantasy items from online stores, assemblages or self-designed props. The composition often emphasizes a narrative or concept rather than the technical or craft. In the past, for example, Boulet has often worked with sand, photo prints, light and sound, smoke, scent, neon, inflatable palm trees or self-designed shower curtains. As an educated painter, the artist likes to play with and question the history and traditions of painting. For example, he uses exotic wallpaper as a cheap counterpoint and persiflates about the perception of painting as an elitist or highly valued medium. The recurring palm tree functions as a trademark for his oeuvre. 


The statement of Waiting Rooms can also be interpreted broadly in terms of content; criticism of the art market, criticism of the lack of craftsmanship in contemporary art, criticism of cheap consumerism in Western society or rather as an ironic image about the desire for better (personal) welfare.
