Ana Mendieta: Traces

Tuesday 24 September 2013 - Sunday 15 December 2013

Using her own body, together with elemental materials such as blood, fire, earth and water, Ana Mendieta creates visceral performances and ephemeral ‘earth-body’ sculptures that combine ritual with metaphors about life, death, rebirth and spiritual transformation. ‘I wanted my images to have power, to be magic,’ she said. ‘I decided that for the images to have magic qualities I had to work directly with nature.’
