Estados generales

A journey of a seed that departs from the archives of the Botanical Garden in Madrid, and ends in an afro-peruvian village in the south coast of Peru, the place where the seed was collected in a colonial expedition around 1800. This seed of a species believed to be extinct, has been described in the diaries of a colonial botanist to be related to curative uses in different pre-Columbian cultures and to induce altered states of consciousness. Like a flare in the dark, the seed will lighten different worlds and realities that hide in the shadows.
