Covered in Time and History. The Films of Ana Mendieta
Catalogue of the exhibition

Thanks to new research into Mendieta’s work in the filmic medium, the exhibition at the Jeu de Paume repositions the moving image from the periphery to the centre of her work, and is organized around the recurring themes explored in the films, including memory, history, culture, ritual and the passage of time, which are often distilled through the relationship of the body and the land. The majority of Mendieta’s films take place in nature and often feature her interest in the four classical elements: earth, water, air and fire.
