Boris Raux

Through the use of smell, my work questions the relationship between the real and the symbolic. It is an invitation to rediscover the multiple facets of our constructed identities. This olfactory perspective highlights our ambiguities in order to better understand ourselves.

With my olfactory chronicles, I approach art as a short story novelist who is trying to give depth to our existence. I work like scent: by infiltration.

Besides the touch of humour, my work is determined by the impossibility of understanding and representing the complexity of life, lost in the trace of a smell.

Smells force us to further encounter art from a social and contextual perspective, placing it within the here and now.
