Statement: The ongoing piece “Suck” consists of ten bouquets of hand made fancy straws and is meant to be shown in an atmosphere of convivial exchange in which art is viewed such as Art Fairs. The bouquets are arranged in the bar/lounge/cafe area as one might find flowers or candles used as decorative accents creating ambiance. As a courtesy or infiltration, throughout the duration of the event, the bartenders/wait persons adorn each libation with a decorative straw—whether the drink would normally call for such condiment (margarita), or not (espresso). In this way, each potential viewer is given the possibility of recognizing the straw donation, as the object that it is, as art, gift, or trash and hoarding. By addressing the boundaries with which drink decorum is associated, much less the art viewing process, the piece aims at redefining the relationship public display and performance, ownership and collecting and trash. This attitude is further reiterated by the conscious or unconscious realization of the piece as art or utilitarian fancy, in which case decisions of worth take on completely opposite meanings. By recognizing the piece as art, the question of preservation becomes apparent while also ridiculous. While by recognizing the utilitarian aspect destroys the very existence of its art intent. This rift between preservation and utility is the crux of the piece, as slowly the bouquets themselves are depleted (used) and through the literal destruction of the bouquets the piece in its entirety, lives. And rather than letting the piece simply die what would seem a rather natural way, a second set of straws has been made, and is exhibited in a booth of one of the participating dealers. So in the end, there is a visual reminder that the bouquets are a piece, as the casual viewer to the fair sitting for a drink, has the potential to cite from memory, the very thing recently encountered. Lastly, the title, “Suck” refers to both the literal function of a straw, an objective opinion in the slang negative, and the sexual innuendo of those reclaiming everything to the libido.
