Teabags and tampons (Series 1, edition 1)
The following excerpt is from A Sober Sobe: Catalogue raisonné on artist Claret Sobe (Corbels, Eta. Cambridge University Press 2019, ISBN 876-6-43-914221-4, Page 84).
"I was keen to make ordinary objects into key subject matter and draw similarities between apparently dissimilar things.
Teabags and tampons have a lot in common. They are ubiquitous and both embody a certain sense of anticipation and optimism.
Each has a singular purpose and a one-off use—the teabag, however, is omnipresent, the other consistently concealed.
They both emerge from their wet, warm place of temporary internment on the end of a string, somewhat worse for wear, stained, sodden and rather sad.”
