Item number - ahdh477

Item description - Five Croquette Balls on Wooden Candle Holder

Date of release - Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Name - Chelsea Clark-James

Reason for release -

I don't know where the croquette balls came from. I had some grand vision of drilling into them and hanging them from the wall, but I didn't get around to that, so I stuck them on top of a wooden tea candle my mother gave us and we never used, but (surprise surprise) we held onto it, I seemingly more than he. I thought I'd make the most of it, put it in the window - it's colorful and fun, though I could never fully close the blinds. And then to call it art! It's one thing to be resourceful and another to justify avoiding. Why do I want to hold onto things and inconvenient gifts from a past life I don't even remember getting? You know, I just had a thought, is it possible that the modern epidemic of hoarding is the outlet for our genetic/instinctual tendency to gather - which is stifled in these crazy times? So why try to gussy up a burden, there's an art to releasing too.

Method of release - SRS released these balls and candle holder by playing a game of urban croquet.
