Frank Bölter / GERMANY

North American Premiere


On A Voyage focuses on the childhood dream of taking the simplest of means – a sheet of paper and a little imagination – and using it to create a vehicle with which to travel into unlimited realms of fantasy. In becoming reality, the dream loses its sense of unlimited possibility, thus revealing that it is precisely this quality in which its true essence lies. On A Voyage is about creating a spirit of pioneering which might have inspired Christopher Columbus, Marco Polo, NASA and others. It’s an interactive public project from the beginning: the material is always produced at local cardboard box factories and the material and location determine the project, as do the group of people who create the paper boat. Wind and weather will leave their traces and team spirit is essential for the “success” of the project, the voyage and its duration. Success does not mean a long voyage, as the project is about the power of team spirit.

Frank Bölter began using his work to challenge expectations both inside and outside the academic art world while a student at the Münster Academy of Fine Arts from 1998 to 2003.

“Bölter’s projects are distinguished equally by their powerful poetic imagery and by the precision of their execution, often carried out under the difficult conditions of the public sphere. Moreover his projects are predicated on an impressive effort to communicate, which leaves traditional definitions of object and practice behind and expands his installations into the realm of the performative.” (Jörg van den Berg, Columbus Art Foundation)


Born in Lippstadt (Germany), visual artist Frank Bölter participated in numerous exhibitions before expanding his artistic practice to paper and cardboard interventions in the public space with the following projects: “Akropolis-Linz”, “Bis Ende der Welt”, “Auf großer Fahrt” or “Wellpapphaus / House – how to live.”
