She’s on the Rag

2013 – Menopause

Prints, Etsy Store, and Videos by Xandra Ibarra

Launched on the eve of the full blood moon of September 2015, Ibarra began an online Etsy store entitled “She’s on the Rag” which offered various Rorschach tests made of her own menstrual blood dated as far back as 2013.  Ibarra will create period blot tests during her monthly menstrual cycles till she reaches menopause.  In addition to selling individual menstrual works of art, the artist offers a psychodynamic consultation that aims to “read,” in English or Spanish, every buyer via a video consultation.
