Artist Rachel Libeskind is unbeholden to one medium or one mode of expressions and instead strings her work together through performance, collage, installation and textile often examining her relationship to history. The image above is from Libeskind's performance piece entitled The Traveling Bag which she describes as “a performance work that uses the vessel of the suitcase and the action of packing and unpacking to deal with issues of migration, movement and the past."

I am launching a publication with friend and fellow artist, Emma Cook, entitled GirlsWorld.  In 2015 we started collecting works from artists that we believe have something to speak to on the dilemma of eternal girlhood and have created a book including over 50 artists works. GirlsWorld is going to be a printed object, featuring artwork, writing, stills, ephemera, musings, poetry (and more) on the topic or dilemma of "eternal Girlhood," and the danger of the gender binary.
