Solange Adum Abdala


Lima, Peru

When thinking about the use of native plants for medicinal purposes due to the respective healing properties of each plant, which are also used in esoteric rituals, we usually associate them with the benefits of direct contact with nature as part of their intrinsic qualities such as freshness, the association with life, growth and above all the relationship with nature.

The Medicina photographic series proposes to make a distance between these characteristics to reinterpret how today in urban places, users who want to benefit from their respective properties, acquire them as a dry and bagged consumer product. The branches that were once part of an organism planted on the ground, within a space of vast nature, are photographically approached dismembered from their original context where it becomes evident how the plants lose their aura of life.
