This is an Ana Mendieta inspired performance art piece documented through photographs. This environmental art was showcased in the art gallery for a senior project as an undergraduate student in Upper Iowa University.
Ana Mendieta was an exceptional performance artist, sculptor, painter and a video artist who focused on themes such as feminism, life, death, violence, and identity among others. While most of her work consisted the four elements of nature, Mendieta often paid particular attention on spiritual and physical connection with Earth.
Ana Mendieta is best known for her “earth-body” artwork.
