Torso

The works shown here are all in one way or another made from teabags. Where necessary other objects and materials were added. ​

Teabags have been part of my work since 2010, where I used them for a work that dealt with rape and resulting pregnancy. The fragility of teabags and the state of being “used” intrigued me. Combining teabags with wire is like a play on the opposing qualities of violence, harshness, masculinity and femininity, vulnerability, domestic comfort. Since I am using teabags whenever something is out of sync or tune. Where misuse, misconception, reuse, violence, ignorance about a certain topic is in place, teabags are my favourite material of source.
