Ana Mendieta On Culture

Untitled (Blood and Feathers)Ana Mendieta (November 18, 1948 – September 8, 1985)

The making of my ‘Silueta’ in nature keeps the transition between my homeland and my new home. It is a way of reclaiming my roots and becoming one with nature. Although the culture in which I live is part of me, my roots and cultural identity are a result of my Cuban heritage.
