"Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) produced some of the most compelling images of body- and identity-oriented art of the 1970s. The tracks made by the artist dragging her blood-covered arms down a wall; the pigment-filled void of her silhouette pressed into a sandy beach, consumed by advancing waves; her bodily outline drawn by ignited gunpowder on the earth or set alight with fireworks against the night sky; and fetishistic goddess shapes molded in soil, adorned with flowers, resound in the histories of feminist art, performance and land art, and late twentieth-century Latin American art." "Despite major survey exhibitions by museums in the United States, Europe, and Latin America over the last decade, however, a large body of work by Mendieta remains unknown. Hundreds of 35 mm slides in the artist's personal archive, including many that document her extensive Silueta series - her signature "earth-body works" created in the landscapes of Mexico, Iowa, upstate New York, and Cuba between 1973 and 1981 - remain unpublished and are unknown even to the most knowledgeable of contemporary art scholars. In addition to the slide works published in this volume for the first time, there are selections from her many black-and-white photographic negatives and contact sheets, documenting unknown sculptural works produced in the early 1980s, as well as revealing pages from the artist's diaristic sketchbooks."--BOOK JACKET.

During her short career, Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) created a body of work that was provocative and radically inventive. Using her own body, together with elemental materials - blood, fire, earth and water - she created visceral performances and ritual 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 moulded from sand, carved into rock, or incised in clay.This book includes an anthology of never seen before material including Mendieta's own writings and press coverage of her shows. Encompassing a wealth of her drawings, photography and filmography, it also provides a compre­hensive and enlightening perspective on this important artist's work.This title accompanies the first monograph exhibition of this artist in the UK at Hayward Gallery, 24 September - 15 December 2013.

Ana Mendieta was a Cuban-American female artist, whose work was a continuing search for identity throughout her life. She often searched for her roots in the earth itself, using it directly in her art and with her own body. This "return to the earth" was a metaphor for her life on many levels. Mendieta refers back to the Earth as a sense of home, literally and figuratively, as a tie to feminism and her womanhood, and her bond with religion, particularly the pagan-inflected, Cuban Catholicism known as Santeria. Tying her body to the land is how she felt an abundance of power and found her real niche. Mendieta utilized the earth and the land for most of her artistic career, which spanned from roughly 1972 to 1985, when she fell to her untimely death at age 36. Many know her for her death rather than her life, as Carl Andre, famous minimalist artist and her husband, was accused but acquitted of pushing her out of their 34th story window to her demise. Mendieta's art was often overshadowed- a problem many women artists encounter. Yet, Mendieta's posthumous notoriety helped redress her artworks. The search for Ana Mendieta's identity continues even after her death, as her work continues to be redressed and more recognized in current times.
