Galerie Lelong & Co. is pleased to present a selection of Ana Mendieta photographs from the Silueta Series in conjunction with the current solo exhibition in the New York gallery of the late artist’s work. These small-scale photographs offer an entry into Mendieta’s groundbreaking practice and contributions to early earth-body art through photography and her series of ephemeral works in the landscape. The Silueta Series is Mendieta’s most well-known body of work, created between 1973 and 1980 in various locations including Iowa and Mexico. Mendieta often obsessively approached the visual conceptualization of her images. Her persistence is most apparent in the Silueta works.
