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.
