This is the first solo show of Cuban artist Ana Mendieta’s work in the UK since her retrospective Traces, curated by Stephanie Rosenthal at the Hayward Gallery in 2013. This exhibition focuses on the themes of metamorphosis and transformation in Mendieta’s work, from her early performances at the University of Iowa in the 1970s, to her later sculptural work in the first half of the 1980s. This thematic focus includes groundbreaking work in performance and photography, drawings and leaf sculptures as well as three films that will be exhibited individually over the duration of the exhibition.
The theme of metamorphosis and transformation also includes camouflage, with a particular focus on the relationship of the body to nature.
