Ana Mendieta and Body Subjectivity

Ana Mendieta - Untitled, Glass on body Imprints

“When we speak of feminism, it’s important to know that anytime a woman, especially a beautiful woman uses her body and distorts it, it is, in essence, a political act. So often women are the subject of the male gaze, all over art history. That’s what we see – women as object – and here, Mendieta like many women of her generation are transposing that relationship to make women a subject of her own gaze and therefore of our gaze and that it’s a very empowering step.” 
-Marie Sabbatino
