Ana Mendieta: TracesAna Mendieta: Traces

Published by Hayward Gallery Publishing.
Foreword by Ralph Rugoff. Text by Julia Bryan-Wilson, Adrian Heathfield, Stephanie Rosenthal.

During her short career, Ana Mendieta (1948–85) created a body of work that was provocative and radically inventive. Using her own body, together with elemental materials--blood, fire, earth and water--she created visceral tableaux and ephemeral "earth-body" sculptures exploring life, death, rebirth and spiritual transformation. Much of her art also expresses the pain and rupture of cultural displacement and exile (Mendieta was born in Cuba, but sent to the US as a child). In her work, the outline of her body is consumed by gunpowder, fireworks, or advancing waves; and ancient goddess-forms are shaped from sand, carved into rock or incised into clay or onto leaves. The media are exceptionally diverse, but the images are consistently compelling, mysterious and poetic.
Encompassing a wealth of drawings, photography and film, Ana Mendieta: Traces provides a comprehensive and illuminating overview of this highly influential artist’s work. Essays by art historians Julia Bryan-Wilson and Adrian Heathfield, as well as Stephanie Rosenthal, Chief Curator at Hayward Gallery, provide an array of new approaches to Mendieta’s practice. This publication also includes a wide-ranging and richly illustrated anthology of never-before-seen material, including Mendieta’s own notebooks, exhibition plans and correspondence, the result of unparalleled access to the Ana Mendieta Archive. Filled with new imagery, ephemera and scholarship, Ana Mendieta: Traces provides a comprehensive introduction to this major twentieth-century artist, as essential for Mendieta experts as for those coming to her work for the first time.

Ana Mendieta: She Got LoveAna Mendieta: She Got Love

Published by Skira.
Edited by Beatrice Merz, Olga Gambari.

An extraordinary effort to reinterpret Ana Mendieta as a pioneer of performance, video, body art, photography, land art and sculpture in the twentieth century. Ana Mendieta: She Got Love gathers over 130 works by this Cuban-American artist, created between 1972 and 1985 and chosen from among the most significant in the prolific production of her brief life. The volume unveils her extremely personal language, which is visionary and material, magical and poetic, political and progressive. In quite a short time (her career as an artist lasted just thirteen years) she experimented with a variety of media: performance, video, photography, drawing, and sculpture, each time including her own image into the work and every time looking for answers, which she would search for not only in the realm of tradition but in everything that links our human roots to the spiritual. Today she is considered a cornerstone of a particular moment in history, and thanks to her eclectic nature, many women artists from different parts of the globe and from later generations have looked at her and her work as a true point of reference.



Beatrice Merz has been codirector of Castello di Rivoli since 2010. Olga Gambari is an editor, journalist, and art historian.

Ana Mendieta: Earth BodyAna Mendieta: Earth Body

Sculpture and Performance 1972 -1985

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Essays by Olga M. Viso, Guy Brett, Julia P. Herzberg, Chrissie Iles and Laura Roulet.

This major monograph, a comprehensive reconsideration of the brief life and career of Ana Mendieta, contextualizes the artist's work within its time and acknowledges her legacy on subsequent generations of artists. The Cuban-born American sculptor is celebrated for her earth-body works of the 1970s, sculptural interventions in the landscape that placed her body--or its haunting silhouette--in symbiotic relationship with nature. Using extracts from her films, original slide documentation, photography, and other archival material, this catalogue illustrates early performances from Mendieta's student days, as well as her more well-known Silueta Series made in Iowa and Mexico from 1973 to 1980. Earth-body works executed in Canada, Cuba and the United States in the early 1980s, and select sculptures, drawings and installations dating to the mid-80s will also be illustrated. This publication promises to be the definitive study of the artist's work.
