Socking revelation from Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK) – now feet-ured in the International Exhibition of Holes

Rebecca - hole - 1

Mail-art by Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK)

Our dear friend Miss Becca sent from her Nayland Chicken Ranch this intriguing and most  ingenious contribution to the First International Exhibition of Holes.

We resist revelling in the thought that poor Empress Marie will be absolutely green with envy when she discovers this conceptual triumph is now ensconced safely and for the ages in the MinXus USA collection. However, we should have warned Miss Becca never to send Dark wall women’s footwear of any sort. Sadly, the piece has been slightly ravaged and ill-used, but not beyond repair.

Dearest Tenderfoots, can you see what Miss Becca has done? We do not have the exact terminology, but she stuffed or placed a thick postcard inside a sock, stocking, or “footsie.”  Maybe wrapped – Christo-like – is most precise. Regardless, the sock does represent a hole. Sending the piece through the postal system in this fashion is certainly following the most refined practices of mail-art. Here is the reverse side before the sock/stocking was removed:

Lovely stamps from our most faithful Ambassador in Guivry! And Miss Becca writes: “DEAR DARK WALL A GENUINE HOLE FROM SUFFOLK TOE MADE FROM TOO MUCH DANCIN.” We shall certainly cherish our most rare Suffolk hole here at the Mink Ranch. Here is a another view of this most amazing work:

Hopefully you can clearly see how the sock encases the card. Here is the part where perhaps Dark wall went too far. He could not rest until the sock had been completely removed (although it has now been since re-assembled showing some wear-and-tear):

A revelation ! Is it not oh most faithful Tenderfoots?

The unenlightened might say: “But Miss Becca sent you her sock!”

We would reply: “No, Miss Becca sent us her art. We are exceedingly grateful.”

    OMG. What? Green is a euphemism. I’m going all shades of green all ’round and back to the start again. I love the little tangerines as well. You’re so spoiled, Dw, do you know that? Absolute gem for the Exhibition.

    You should dance barefoot, Rebecca, it’s quite a good feeling. But then again… it won’t produce stunning holism pieces.

    It works good Miss Becca. That is some holesome entertainment.
