  • Catalogue Essay

    Throughout her interdisciplinary artistic oeuvre, Ana Mendieta incorporated her own body along with materials from the earth as a sculptural and performative medium to reconnect with her roots and explore themes such as displacement, migration, identity and racism. Mendieta’s work has been exhibited worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York and Centre Pompidou, Paris and is held in numerous collections, including Tate, London, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, Centre Pompidou, Paris and The Art Institute of Chicago.
