THE SHIPIBO CONIBO

and the experience of the ayahuasca

 

The Shipibo-Conibo,

an indigenous people in the Amazon rainforest in Perú.

The shamans share the ayahuasca with their patients. This is a very hallucinatory plant that gives you visions about your inner world.

Guided by the shaman, this is supposed to cure people from all diseases, and show you the "true reality".

 

My work is about that moment when your mind transcents reality as we know it, when the visions begin to superimpose that reality, and that you can't understand if you imagine what you're seeing

or if it's a part of the hallucination.
