Mercedes Castro Corbat started portraying herself through the landscapes that were her backstage during her nomad life. Starting with the city of Rome, she went from the macro to the micro, ending with the background of her garden in Buenos Aires. A garden that had grown orderly tendered by the hands of her husband and that during the last year had lost control. A series of x-rays had shown the inevitable. Arthritis had become an obstacle for the gardener’s hands and a green light for the plants to declare freedom.
