“Las Yerbas” Apothecary is a site for conversations between artists, Indigenous sabedores (Native thinkers), local communities, and researchers from New York City and Latin America around the power of sacred plants. Part traditional herbs stand, part cabinet of wonders, the “Las Yerbas” Apothecary presents aesthetic and cultural contrasts between Indigenous medicinal practices and Western apothecaries.
Liana, a multidisciplinary collective, investigates plant-human relationships and plant-based artistic practices. Seeking to broaden people’s understanding of plants as subjects with agency their work advocates for the mystical, political, and medicinal value of sacred plants, as these continuously nourish and strengthen many diasporic and local communities.
