    The golf ball project (2008)

    It was in July of 2008, when I was invited by guest studio Leo XIII in Tilburg, that I saw a work made by my predecessor. Her name was D. This work was a small piece of earth (grass and all) that was placed on a crack on the floor in the guest studio. I was quite intrigued and wanted to use it in my own exhibition the following month. I asked D if were possible. She wanted to know what my plans were and I told her I could put a small golf ball on it, for example. D didn’t mind and the following day I told the entire story to my friend and colleague B. After telling him about my idea he mentioned a work by an Irish artist by the name of S who had exhibited a bronze golf ball that had been stolen from a statue of Bill Clinton from some village in Ireland.

    I came upon the idea to try and acquire the golf ball so that I could exhibit it on the small piece of grass that I had lent from D. The gag of giving the golf ball a new context inspired me but getting possession of it proved difficult: the Irish artist S had left Holland for an art residency program in Canada a few days before. Still, I decided to email him and explain my idea. He liked the concept but was hesitant to relinquish the golf ball for the exhibition. I had three weeks before my opening and decided not to give up. S eventually said he would send the ball with a small story about its history and where it had come from. As our email correspondence grew he eventually changed his mind and in the end declined to send it. His final refusal I printed out and crumbled into a tiny ball approximately the size of the bronze golf ball, which I placed on the piece of grass. On the wall space next to it I exhibited 12 pages of our email dialogue.
