Each drawing measures 70 cm x 50 cm
Charcoal on hand made paper envelopes


Each of these drawings were drawn with charcoal on handmade paper envelopes. Inside of them, 7 seeds of a Ombu tree remain dormant. Once the traveling show ends, these will be left at a open landscape, allowing nature to take over and activate the seeds from within them. While the seeds await for the right humidity and light to begin their journey in time, the drawings act as degradable womb, hosting their uncertain future.

A text written in collaboration with philosopher Michael Marder is also a part of the show: ¨Vegetal transmutation¨.
