"My amazonic journey" (2022)

 

A walk through the Amazon jungle accompanied by Don Mauro, a guide from the Ticuna community, who told us about the meaning of the forest for the indigenous community: source of natural resources, natural medicine, shamanism and nonsense.

 

The forest as an archetype means opposite things in the West and in the East. In the West, the forest is a place of darkness, threats and problems. In the East it is a place of enlightenment, repair and well-being, it is a sacred place. The Amazon forest is the physical and spiritual home of the Ticuna, among others.

 

This journey is approached as a graphic story in vignettes, capturing different images of the forest canopy, while we hear Don Mauro's narration, full of remedies and magic.

 

"My amazonic journey" is a work made up of 12 acid-etched brass plates finished with matt black ink. They are framed in natural walnut wood with thung oil.
