The films of Ana Mendieta.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Jeu de Paume, Paris, from October 16, 2018, to January 27, 2019.
In a brief yet prolific career, the Cuban-born artist Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) created groundbreaking work in photography, film, video, drawing, sculpture, and site-specific installations. Amongst the major themes in her work are exile, displacement, and a return to the landscape, which remain profoundly relevant today. Her unique hybrid of form and documentation, works that she titled “siluetas,” are fugitive and potent traces of the artist's inscription of her body in the landscape, often transformed by natural elements such as fire and water.
