Okay, so what are we supposed to learn once we stop giggling? Kelley says the mouths and nipples reflect both her own and societys tendency to constantly consume, but never produce. The sucking mouth of consumer culture doesnt satisfy us the nipple of capital culture its empty at this point.
My art is about taking stuff out of the waste stream and repurposing it, and if it doesnt work out, I just put it back in the waste stream, and I havent changed the total mass. So even if my art really does suck, I can throw it away and I dont have to feel bad. Suckling is on display in Freed Art and Nature Park for the Houston Parks and Recreation Departments Green Valentine, which hosts tree plantings and green art projects. Kelley unveils her spheres today at 2 p.m. at the corner of Houston Avenue and White Oak. The sculpture will be on view every day through November 1. For information, call 713-502-9454 or visit
