- KurzbeschreibungDuring her short career, Ana Mendieta (1948 1985) created an oeuvre that is provocative and radically inventive. Using her own body, together with elemental materials such as blood, fire, earth, or water, Mendieta created visceral performances and ephemeral earth-body sculptures exploring life, death, rebirth, and spiritual transformation. Born in Cuba, but sent to America as a child, much of her art expresses the pain and rupture of cultural displacement and exile. Her images are compelling, mysterious, and poetic. In some, the outline of her body is consumed by gunpowder, fireworks or advancing waves; others record ancient goddess-forms molded from sand, carved into rock, or incised in clay. Featuring illuminating essays, the book presents never-before-seen writings of the artist herself and press coverage of her shows. Last but not least, a wealth of Mendieta s drawings, photography, and film see the light of day as never before.
