flowers on body (1973) - ana mendieta
‘mendieta’s art took shape in performance, earthworks, sculptures, and photographs. again and again, she carved a haunting, iconic figure into the ground, onto the side of a cave, or even into a stream of water - by defining the form with ripples and rocks. on occasion the figure was born in flames, literally exploding into existence - then burning up. Aal that was left of these pieces, called the “silueta series,” is a scar, a shadow-image. the earth owns these works, which will disappear over time.”
- elizabeth hess, “out of body,” village voice, 8 december 1987, p. 110.
