the project

Facing a history of omissions, we talk today of witches’ plants. We talk about the link between nature and the power of healing that women have always possessed: orality and geography, secrets and recipes for curing all kinds of suffering.

PlanteSorcières is an interdisciplinary long term project about the transmission of the knowledge as an act of resistance and the process of sharing as a way of survival.

It speaks about women and plants, about medicine and rituals, it cares about care and maintenance, it holds collectives memories and individual stories.

PlanteSorcières is an attempt to reflect (on) our position, as women, (re)narrating the history of the women before us.

It speaks of a history of power, about a persecuted knowledge and forgotten voices.

It tells stories of relationships and encounters, moving through the present – from the past – giving possible views of the future
