The historical myth surrounding the consumption of arsenic, that high-grade poison said to have positive effects on health, forms the starting point of the project. Yet, how can a legend for which there is hardly any evidence and whose existence is even doubted be portrayed? The artist pairs his own photographs with archival images and research material to offer us a semi-fictional quest for clues.
