Body Prints / by Amy Frost

Experimenting with body printing, inspired by Ana Mendieta and Yves Klein.

I wanted to experiment with painting and performance and I saw “Homage to Ana Mendieta” and was inspired to recreate body printing in homage to her also.

I learnt Mendieta died after falling down 33 flights of stairs! And so I would like to do a performance based around this involving her famous body printing, and relating it to her death, in the future. For now, I’m experimenting and seeing what works and testing out different areas of the body.
