Ana Mendieta: Untitled (from the Silueta series), 1973-1977

I chose this image because I thought it was pretty striking after reading a biography on Ana Mendieta. She died 8 years after this exhibit ended after being pushed out of her window on the 34th floor of her apartment building. I think it’s interesting because she had no way of knowing this would happen to her, but this image is erie to look at as it’s her silhouette that’s been filled in with blood laying in what makes me think of a grave.
