During her brief but prolific career, Cuban artist Ana Mendieta® conceived an innovative body of work that materialized in photography, film, video, drawing, sculpture and site-specific installations. The main themes of her work continue to be relevant today, as they traverse present-day issues such as exile, displacement and the return to nature. Mendieta established her own personal synthesis between Body and Land Art through the hybridization between form and documentation, generating a series of works that she titled Siluetas. In these powerful productions where the artist fuses her body with nature, Mendieta allows the metamorphosis of herself into natural elements such as fire and water, becoming part of nature. From Iowa to Mexico, through Cuba, New York and finally Rome, Ana Mendieta explored the concept of the earth as a space in which to address issues of displacement by articulating the presence of her body and its trace within different natural elements and environments.
