Cultures are filled with methods of self-help and medical healing. When it comes to health, we rarely use our common sense and environmental awareness to make second guesses. Regardless of whether the methods actually work or not, they contain strands of cultural knowledge that celebrate a heritage. Perhaps people’s attitudes to healing are inscribed into beliefs and the enactment of narrative remedies. While at the Botkyrka artist residency in Fittja, Sweden, during the winter 2011, we looked around the community. We met children, families, groups of men and women, approached them, and asked about their remedies.
