Ana Mendieta was a Cuban-American artist who worked in the fields of performance art, conceptual art, photography and film. She was a central figure in the Body Art Movement. A central theme of Mendieta's work is the combination of the human body and nature. Her work reflects personal experiences of uprooting, cultural displacement, migration, and painful loss. This series tells Mendieta's story within the context of her art. Different motifs and central components reinterpret some of her works and adapt them to contemporary times. A modern visual language with visible reference to her art is intended to bring Mendieta to life in today's world and to transport the relevance of her messages into the present.
