A Tucuman Jasmine é uma planta nativa da América do Sul. Seu habitat, uma espécie de floresta em degradação e regressão pela ação antrópica, está protegido. Além disso, seu cultivo é recomendado para atrair a borboleta monarca.

A Cruel Plant é uma planta invasora muito agressiva no sul da Europa e em países como a África do Sul ou Austrália. Sufoca as árvores na floresta e nas plantações, por isso está sujeita à erradicação e a sua introdução no meio natural, o transporte e o comércio são proibidos.

A Tucuman Jasmine e a Cruel Plant são da mesma espécie (Araujia sericifera). A dualidade de sua história, no estilo do Dr. Jekyll e do Sr. Hyde, inspira “Cruel of Tucuman“, uma instalação performática sobre essas duas identidades radicalmente opostas depositadas na mesma espécie. Duas narrativas opostas que refletem os estragos de nossa globalização nos ecossistemas, bem como o binarismo e antropocentrismo marcantes que caracterizam o pensamento ocidental.

Quo Artis in collaboration with the Botanical Institute of Barcelona (IBB) are delighted to invite you the open event that will take place on July 18 in the Botanical Institute of Barcelona.

The Tucuman Jasmine is a plant native to South America. Its habitat, a type of forest in degradation and regression due to human action, is protected. In addition, its cultivation is recommended for attracting the monarch butterfly.

The Cruel Plant is a very aggressive invasive plant in southern Europe and countries such as South Africa or Australia. It suffocates trees in forest and crops, so it is subject to eradication and its introduction into the wild, transport and trade is prohibited.

The Tucuman Jasmine and the Cruel Plant are the same species (Araujia sericifera). The duality of their story, in the style of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, inspires Cruel de Tucumán, a performative installation about these two radically opposed identities deposited in the same species. Two opposing narratives that reflect the ravages of our globalisation on ecosystems, as well as the marked binarism and anthropocentrism that characterises Western thought.
