The first retrospective of this major artist’s work to be presented in the UK.
Focusing on her later pieces, the exhibition reveals the full breadth of her work and her unique practice in a wide variety of media, from photography to film, sculpture to drawing.
In her short career, Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) created an extraordinary body of work, both provocative and radically inventive.
Using her own body together with elemental materials such as earth, water, blood and fire, she produced visceral performances and ephemeral ‘earth-body’ sculptures that combine ritual with metaphors about life, death, rebirth and spiritual transformation.
