2004 – 2008
Screen print on tiles
Panacea Phantastica (2003-2008) gathers tiles portraying 50 types of mind-altering plants from different parts of the world, as some sort of botanic catalog. Originally conceived as a multiple, with a given print run allowing for different applications, such as its own raw material – tiles.
For this reason, it can be adapted to the architecture, just as it happens at Instituto Inhotim, where it covers a bench by the entrance of the gallery. One of the tiles brings a text suggesting the relation between hallucinogenic effects of plants and the ensuing shift of perception of what surrounds us, effects that can also be tantalized by art.
