    Once I was accosted by the Untitled Hair Suds images I knew this was a trail I had to walk As a museum catalog the text is predictably stiff with museo academic speak about the downfalls of previous stereotypes; the art itself is from someone ranging wild and risky In what could be a multi volume set fifty? seventy? this is a varied archive of the artist's collection of slides as she progressed in and around the earth spectral siluetas in transformation designs on leaves earth on wood sculptures The ephemeral as an organizing principle is utterly compelling There is an unforgettable anecdote about Mendieta's first body art in which she planted a bean in one of her nostrils; after a week or two the bean began to sprout causing problems in her sinuses so it had to be removed You won't take a nature walk in the same way again you do take those right?
