Conducted from the mid-1970s until her untimely death in 1985, Mendieta’s powerful performances have strong feminist undertones. Her works stand in striking contrast to a 1960 performance by Yves Klein, wherein he directed several nude women as ‘living paintbrushes’ to paint his patented color, ‘Klein Blue,’ on huge sheets of paper. By soaking her hands and arms in blood and paint, Mendieta’s performance challenges Klein’s ‘Anthropometry’ painting by mark-making with her own body and of her own accord.
