Carina Ubeda.

Because of an allergy Ubeda had to use sanitary cloth and instead of tossing them aside, Ubeda decided to collect the souled fabric and has been for the last five years. Within Ubeda’s exhibition entitled ‘cloth’, 90 used sanitary rages with words like “destroyed” and “production” were embroidered into them and hung up stretched inside embroidery hoops along side rotten apples, symbolising ovulation.

Some have labelled Ubeda’s art as disgusting. One visitor said “Male blood is celebrated for being brave while our is a shame.”

With a lot of thing women are made to feel ashamed of menstruation is one of the main ones. It’s something taboo, in my 21 years on earth and 6 years menstruating myself I’ve never came across a male who is confutable talking or even acknowledge it. But saying this ice found even some women won’t openly talk about it even when it’s happens to pretty much ever female over the age of 15 and happens ever four weeks. I just can’t get my head around how something that is completely natural is such a taboo.
