Meet the Woman Who Collected Her Menstrual Blood On Pieces Of Cloth For 5 Years Displays BLOOD Stained Fabric In Art Exhibition

Carina Ubeda,
from Chile spent five years collecting her menstrual blood on scraps of cloth
has turned the red-stained fabric into an art exhibition. Placed in embroidery hoops,
90 pieces of the soiled cloths hang next to dangling apples, which are meant to
represent ovulation. 
She then
stitched the words ‘Production’, ‘Discard’, and ‘Destroyed’ below each of the
stains.

‘I cannot wear pads because they give me allergies’, Ms Ubeda, who recently
graduated from the University of

Playa Ancha with a Bachelor of Arts,
explained to Soy Chile.

Exhibited at the
Center of Culture and Health in Quillota, the everyday cloths, which Ms Ubeda
used instead of tampons or pads, are presented as ‘an abstract image’.

‘This is a super visual,’ Ms Ubeda said, adding that she wanted to ‘mix art
with something personal’.

Fritz Demuth, the Center’s art manager, said that since the exhibition
debut on Friday, many spectators have tried to smell the pieces of cloth.

‘But the smell
just does not exist, [the cloths] are not filthy,’ she said, adding that to
maintain hygiene, disinfectant spray was applied directly to the blood and
cloth before going on display.

For five years,
Ms Ubeda kept the fabrics in a cushion. ‘I keep things because I
always say, “I’ll do something with it.”‘ At first, she tried to make
an artist’s book with the cloths, but said that an exhibition made more sense.
‘When I look at
the cloth, I do not see that, but an abstract image,’ she said. ‘Many people
have asked me why I wanted to show something so intimate. . . For me, it is
simply a work of art made ​​by me, I see them as separate things’.
Some viewers were
shocked by the exhibition, calling it ‘filthy’ and ‘disgusting’. But
many women have come to the artist’s defense.
