Be Ye Clean...

Be Ye Clean series 
Much of this series was shown in The Cost of Anything an exhibition review can be found here The Cost of Anything at Alice

I love to collect old medicine tins especially the pocket sized ones.  As I contemplated the collection I made a connection to the scriptural injunction to, "depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord. (Isaiah 52:11)" Granted this is not about washing hands or cleaning your body, but I do find humor in thinking of it in those terms. The paradox of relying on man made items to prepare for spiritual matters could not be passed.
