Ana Mendieta and Body Subjectivity

Ana Mendieta - Videos

Pain of Cuba
body I am
my orphanhood I live
In Cuba when you die
the earth that covers us
But here,
covered by the earth whose prisoner I am
I feel death palpitating underneath
the earth.
And so,
As my whole body is filled with want of Cuba
I go on to make my work upon the earth,
to go on in victory.”

-Ana Mendieta
