Nicolet Boots

For me the ideal artwork is something to fall in love with. It should be strangely, strongly self-evident in an organic way, meaning this artwork is the only way it could be, the only way it could be made. It has power like a sacred object, something you want to return to again and again. Every time you look at the artwork it gives you something to take with you.





I wrote down a few rules for myself, to read when in the studio, making art, as a reminder for where I want the artwork to go. (It doesn’t mean I achieve this every day, but it is something I aim for ;-)

- Making art should feel like rock-and-roll

- is about now

- Minimalistic, without losing the poetry

- Make the art you need

- Expand beauty

Genesis. Thought.
Project “Genesis. Dances with shadows” scrutinize feelings, mind, mental and physical, material. To Imagine. To Understand. To Feel. To See. My task is not only creation art images as a combination of different materials (included but not limited by glass, metal, wood and stone) but to understand what is the cornerstone of our consciousness, what is The Genesis? Thought. Imagination as basement, a freedom to think and to learn. The only first way to self cognition is Thought!

Ich gebe dir ZUKUNFT
Die Geste des Gebens ist für eine Bäckerei täglich Brot. Zur 60-Jahrfeier von Fischer Brot wurde ein Museum eingerichtet. Am Ende des Museums ist eine Hand mit Touchscreen installiert. Hier sieht man das Heute und die Visionen und Pläne für Morgen. Also "Ich gebe Dir Zukunft" . 420 Cr-Ni Buchstaben aus dem Firmennamen FISCHER BROT formen eine Hand die aus der Decke kommt und 1 Meter über dem Boden schwebt. Durch die Auflösung der Oberfläche in Buchstaben wird die Skulptur leicht und fügt sich elegant in die Eingangshalle ein. Im Inneren der Hand ist eine indirekte Beleuchtung eingelassen, dies unterstützt die Illusion der schwebenden Hand otimal.

Passing Light
A striking new monumental sculpture is going up at the National Memorial Arboretum: an imposing wall, some three metres high and fifteen metres long, with a series of cracks and grooves cut into it, designed to cast a complex and changing pattern of shadows as the sun moves across the sky. The sculpture, entitled Passing Light, is the work of Stroud-based artist Ann-Margreth Bohl. ‘It’s like some bonkers Stonehenge’, she says: ‘like some of those ancient sites, this also is a time piece. It’s an outdoor installation that unfolds in time, looking very different at different times of day. That means that it repays spending time with it, or revisiting it. So it suits the National Memorial Arboretum: a place where people go again and again, to grieve or to remember.’ Passing Light was commissioned by the renowned Stroud-based garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes, who wanted it initially for the IQ Quarry Garden at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show in the grounds of Chatsworth House, Derbyshire. Ironically, Ann-Margreth was commissioned on the very day that Donald Trump was elected President, with his plans for a very different kind of wall. Ann-Margreth’s brief was just to make a wall with an incision or crack in it: other than that, she had freedom to do pretty much what she liked. She chose to focus on the shadows cast by the wall, and the contrast between what seems solid and the ephemeral effects of light as it plays upon it. ‘The work I’d done before is all to do with light, shadow and form, so it fitted really well.’ Passing Light was originally intended to be in stone, but the final version is made of rusted Corten steel (a preservation order was placed on the Chatsworth stone that Ann-Margreth had planned to use, meaning that it couldn’t be taken away from the Chatsworth Estate – a problem, given that she knew from the outset that Passing Light was to have an afterlife at the National Memorial Garden). Being steel, it will age quicker than it would if it was made of stone – as well as the light changing from moment to moment, over time the material of the wall will change too. For Ann-Margreth this is a new departure: never before has she made work on such a large scale. While she has worked collaboratively in the past (including with Stroud-based composer Emily Hall, and sound designer David Sheppard at the London Sinfonietta), making Passing Light meant working especially closely with others, and in particular with local digital designer Dan Hughes McGrail, who made a computer animation showing how the shifting shadows would be cast by the wall, and who translated Ann-Margreth’s models for Passing Light into something that could be used by architects and structural engineers, to create a monument that won’t fall over. ‘For something that weighs tons, and that is a public artwork, you really need to think that through.’ Walls have a particular significance for Ann-Margreth: she grew up in Germany near the wall between the East and West. ‘That was one of my core inspirations. As a child I would look over the wall and see the guys with machine guns, and all the houses painted the same colour. I always make a point of returning there when I go back to Germany.’ That wall is no longer there (it, too, having proved to be ephemeral), and the former ‘death strip’ between East and West is now a haven for wildlife. Another of Ann-Margreth’s strongest influences is the fact that she grew up a Catholic: ‘I would spend hours in church, looking at the light coming through the windows, and seeing how it would hit the sculptures.’ Time is also a major theme. Ann-Margreth, who works a great deal in stone (and also teaches stone carving at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester), says that she finds it ‘an amazing material – it’s so old, and you’re aware of the time it encapsulates. If I discover something in a piece of stone as I carve away, I know that I’m the first person ever to have seen it. It’s a magical thing. And as you get older, time gets to be a big subject for you. How little our time is here, how important it is to be aware that everything is passing, and how you must make the most of every day. In my work I can translate some of that: Passing Light is a monument to something that can’t be held, or that is moving through.’ Finally, the transitory nature of life is something that was impressed on Ann-Margreth at a young age. ‘In my early twenties I trained as a paediatric nurse, working with terminally ill children. Being with children who are dying, and seeing how short their life is – it was a hard job to do. But from an early age it made me think “I’ve got to make the most of this.” Since then, with the support of a lot of people, I’ve been able to carve out my life. It’s like the old sundials, which often had mottoes carved into them saying “don’t waste time” – you have to be aware that everything is ephemeral. My work taps into that.’ When Passing Light was on display at Chatsworth, Ann-Margreth was able to sit, unobserved, and hear what visitors said about it. ‘The punters would come in and they would say things, and I would sit with my little notebook, writing down their comments. There was one that touched me deeply: a woman said “you know what, this reminds me of when we went to Berlin. Do you remember the wall there, and how they had taken everything down? It really reminds me of that.” And that in a way is where this all comes from. Sometimes as an artist you question whether what you do is worth it, but when it can trigger a thought in somebody else, for me that’s the biggest gift that I can give.’

Crying Dinghy (A Spirit Recharge Vessel from the Cosmic Recharge Series)
The Crying Dinghy is a rescue boat for the human spirit, made for everyday people as a place for contemplation. It comprises a stone pillow near the bow and two giant gramophone horns, which channel tears cried into the pillow to amplify them. While the vessel is built to navigate the sea of tears, once the flood of raw emotion has been released, the person themselves might feel their own inner buoyancy.

Zeewierwoud
Installation. Kirigami, Tyvek. In Ireland at the Atlantic shoreline, when the ocean-floor temporary becomes land, eccentric shapes of seaweeds appear on the rocks. Fascinating, huge and mysterious. With a tough leather like structure, now and then half transparent like the skin of strange sea creatures. How would it be like to wander through these seaweed woods? This work ‘Seaweed-wood’ started in spring 2020, during the first outbreak of Corona crisis when society came to a hold. The silence and the absence of daily disturbance gave the opportunity to optimum concentration. These peculiar circumstances were of great influence on the final looks of this work.

DER KUSS
Der Kuss: Inspired by Gustav Klimt’s famous Kuss, this sculpture explores the relation and integration of human love and nature. As the two figures entwine, so the plants interweave, uniting the sculpture and becoming a part of it. Like the plants, the couple’s love starts from a small seed, grows and blooms, yet is also subject to influence and change from the world. Aesthetically this work is connected to New York Project, but a step further in transparency

Ignorance #1
“Ignorance is the root of all suffering which is the lack of knowledge and understanding.” In this sculpture I show ignorance as heads that are in the box, they are ignorant therefore they can’t find their way to happiness. They are in a dark area which is the box where they cannot see the light. They are all connected. They are all part of one body which is the universe.

Ignorance #2
In this sculpture the boxes are almost open and heads are about to come out. They are not in the dark anymore, but still can’t see (heads don’t have eyes) and can’t hear (they don’t have ears). But there is still hope. Also, they are connected because all humans are connected like cells in a body. We are all part of the universe and therefore we are all connected. If one cell in a body is suffering it will affect all other cells. So if one human is suffering, it affects all other human-beings.

HDF, plastic, acrylic paint The object can be hung all four sides on the wall or placed on a pedestal. The wafer-thin material is a pendant and a symbol of the refugee and immateriality of light. Its waveform "models" the reflected color gradients. Where two colors meet, color mixtures are created. _____________________________ HDF, Kunststoff, Lack, Acrylfarbe Das hauchdünne Material ist Pendent und Sinnbild für die Flüchtigket und Immaterialität des Lichtes.

the insane
the work is part of a composition called vices. VICES These works represent an image of past, present and future vices. They narrate the ritual of everyday habits that interconnects various characters illustrated in their transformation (metamorphosis). Relations emerging therefrom give birth to a story. What are these relations? What is the story? I am attempting to stimulate the viewer to assess circumstances, I am trying to start an impromptu dialogue by association of two seemingly absent entities. Starting from the human dimension, each character – which may become an exemplary model to be meditated upon – makes reference to fundamental life experiences in a place (universe) dominated by the everlasting omnipresence of frustration, whose existence in time is intended to be anticipated. Therefore, these works are materialized in the visual plan of the imbalance between inner- and outer-self. My endeavors pursue a human urge, more precisely the reintegration in basic, day-to-day life of fragments of an excess (overabundance) of actuality (reality), represented in a condensed form through the details of a gest.

Even the trees are crying
The installation EVEN THE TREES ARE CRYING by Aurelia van der Burght, initially created out of glass, ceramic elements and steel wire, has emerged following the disastrous world in which we live in, and from which we can’t leave. We are responsible and inevitable part of the catastrophic events that will occur. A process that is brought to an end very slowly, almost without notice, like an incendiary tumor. Aurelia invited Hanne Schillemans – dancer, choreographer – to create a new theatrical reality in her own unique way by blending music and image with her movements. The music is composed by Ralph Timmermans, and he’s been inspired by the installation of Aurelia and the movements of Hanne. The performance of his music is done by musician Rob Cornelissen.
