Tratamiento homeopático para el Rio de la Plata sets out to modify the way in which we relate to the aquatic landscape of the city of Buenos Aires. It uses homeopathy as tool for transformation and borrows Dr. Masaru Emoto's technique to visualize the current state of the Rio de la Plata.
The following conversation between homeopath Dr. Mario Draiman (HOM), the biologist Alejandra Bustamante (BIO), the architect and art historian Marta Mirás (HIST), and the artist Eduardo Navarro (EN) aimed to diagnose the state of the river in order to evaluate and determine a specific homeopathic treatment for its symptoms.
Their conversation took place on November 7, 2013 at the Asociación Homeopática argentina in Buenos Aires. In December 2013, Eduardo Navarro created and exhibited a dispenser for this homeopathic treatment as part of the exhibition Aquella mañana fue como si recuperara si no la felicidad, sí la energía, una energía que se parecía mucho al humor, un humor que se parecía mucho a la memoria (curated by Inés Katzenstein and Javier Villa) in Buenos Aires's Parque de la Memoria. A booklet containing the unabridged Spanish version of the following conversation was also part of the artwork. Together with Rivet, Eduardo Navarro edited the original Spanish transcript and translated it into English.
