Ayocoobo

Aycoobo (Nonuya, born in 1967, La Chorrera, Colombia; lives in Bogotá, Colombia), formerly Wilson Rodríguez, carries forth botanical knowledge from the Amazon jungle of Colombia, transmitted by his father Abel. His artistic practice embraces the relationship between humans and the invisible world and the use of medicinal plants to expand perception. For Aycoobo, who has been receiving ancestral knowledge all his life, art is a way to hone his ancient roots and his life as an individual in the contemporary world.
