Solange Adum Abdala

2013 - 2016

Lima, Peru

Project based on "non-memory" as a society after the internal armed conflict that Perú experienced between 1980 and 2000.

Presumably, there is no moment in our past - immediate or not - where we would have been reconciled as a society, therefore it is intuited that we lack that collective sense that seeks to strive for a common good that benefits us all. As a consequence we have hurt each other, we have suffered a collective evil at the Nation level. However, it is undeniable that those who suffered the most, because of the armed struggle - whether on the part of the terrorists or the military - were the peasants, murdered and outraged in the rural areas of the Sierra and the Amazon.

The Sana series seeks to get closer to the earth, and through the photographic representation of ancient plants used in traditional medicine, it proposes a subtle and symbolic reading about the "healing of wounds" that deep Perú suffered in the 80s and 90s.
