Jaime Miranda-Bambarén exhumes
the truncated roots of plundered trees
in the Peruvian highlands.
These are centennial eucalyptus, planted in viceregal times,
razed by our degrading “modernity”.
By transforming such remains into Seeds,
Miranda-Bambarén affirms, to be sure, an ecological claim.
But, above all, he projects a metaphysical vision,
a resurrectional act:
to grant those desecrated remnants a symbolic dignity.
And to transfigure those fields of sown death
into breathless, but almost breathing images of life.
