Muthi follows enduring herbal practices at rural and urban sites in Johannesburg, the Western Cape and Kwazulu- Natal, showing chains of value and practice which include plant collectors, traders, traditional healers, local communities and users. Together these touch on larger issues around erasure and continuity, tradition and modernity, indigenous knowledge and alternative medicine in post-colonial contexts.
