This monograph, devoted to the Cuban born, American artist Ana Mendieta is presented on the occasion of the artist’s exhibition at MUSAC, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León in 2024. It brings together about one hundred works from over fifteen years of production (1968-1985). The exhibition explores in particular how the artist never ceased to reinvent herself, developing an original, ephemeral sculptural language, at times performative in act, nourished by her research into primitive myths and rock art. It focuses especially on revealing her relationship to the visible and the invisible, her way of rendering the unspeakable intelligible through the trace of the body, and how it relates to nature. It is not intended to be a retrospective show, but rather to celebrate the relevance of such political and vibrant contemporary work.
