Residence in San Vicente
Rosa de los Vientos
Installation with 2,500 plants
For the last 14 years, artist Gloria Jaramillo has been working with the Women’s Association of Medicinal Plants of San Vicente, with which she encourages the study and popularization of their traditional and generational knowledge. The exhibition comprises an inventory of the medicinal plants they use, as well as a mountain of earth leading towards the inside of the halls, showing the essential element needed for cultivation. Finally, Jaramillo uses 2,500 plants to build a compass rose in one of the patios of the Museum.
