  • Description (english) Inspired by the Winogradsky column, a late XIX century scientific experiment that recreates the first stages of bacterial life on earth, ‘Blossoms and fruits at once’ is a work that critically reflects on the human desire to go back to a primordial moment of existence, connecting local histories, geological temporalities, oral narratives and magical thought. The aspiration to go back to an alleged stage where nature nurtures humans without effort and fatigues, where blossoms and fruits grow simultaneously breaking the progression of seasons, has always been a very dangerous myth for which women, together with colonized and black people, have had to pay a very high price.
