Ana Mendieta : earth body : sculpture and performance, 1972-1985 by Olga M Viso( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book traces Ana Mendieta's (1948-85) development from the early performance-based works made as a student at the University of Iowa, where she was grounded in the conceptual and body-oriented practices of the 1960s and 1970s, to the creation of independent sculptures and objects in the early 1980s made with fragile, earthen materials. Rooted in nature and in the body, Mendieta's art was inflected by personal identity and femininity, and distinguished by its insistent hybridity. Her earth-body works, or Silueta Series (silhouette series), fused aspects of conceptual, process, performance, body, feminist, and land art. While contributing significantly to these varied dialogues, her work does not fit neatly within any of the accepted terms used to describe artistic activity in the decade." "Born in Havana, Cuba, Mendieta came to the United States as a twelve-year-old political refugee. Her personal and professional development was greatly informed by the painful experience of exile as well as the cross-fertilization of Caribbean and North American values. While deeply rooted in her personal experience, Mendieta's art reveals a passionate desire to connect with a wider, collective human heritage. Her aim to unravel layers of individual and social history and unmask latent ethnic, cultural, and gender biases in society, was to foster greater self-awareness and comprehension of the complex diversity of humanity. It is for this reason that her humble yet prolific production as an artist continues to be relevant today. Its meaning has particular resonance in a global society struggling to grasp the overwhelming points of correspondences and differences between individual, nation, and culture."--Jacket

Unseen Mendieta : the unpublished works of Ana Mendieta by Olga M Viso( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket

Ana Mendieta Traces by Ana Mendieta( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voller Einfallsreichtum und Provokationslust schuf Ana Mendieta (1948–1985) während ihres kurzen Lebens ein innovatives und radikales Werk, in dem sie ihren Körper mit elementaren Stofflichkeiten wie Blut, Feuer, Erde oder Wasser verband und in Performances zu organischen Skulpturen formte. Leben, Tod, Wiedergeburt und spirituelle Wandlung sind zentrale Sujets im Schaffen der Künstlerin, die, in Kuba geboren, früh nach Amerika geschickt, an den Brüchen des Exildaseins und kultureller Heimatlosigkeit litt. Ihre »earth-body works± sind von mysteriös-poetischer Anmutung. In der Symbiose mit der Natur wird ihr Körper zur gespenstischen Silhouette aus tobenden Flammen oder schäumenden Wellen. Gottheiten erscheinen in Sand gemalt, auf Stein geritzt oder in Erde gezeichnet. Neben Zeichnungen, Foto- und Filmarbeiten werden erstmals Schriften und Originaldokumente der Künstlerin veröffentlicht.0Exhibition: Hayward Gallery, London, UK (24.9.–15.12.2013) / Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Austria (29.3.–6.7.2014)
