During the past 2 years Viviana Druga and Tata Christiane have privately hosted a series of performative photographic sessions reenacting the Tarot de Marseille _ Major Arcana.
The Backdrops, costumes and props were inspired by the original cards, but also by the artists’ own mythologies and those of their subjects who where selectively drawn from family, friends and acquaintances.
VAST ERAS and AURAS are being briged in the “22+1″ series of art tarot cards. Archetypal symbilism is reanimated as contemporary, razor-sharp photo collages printed and installed as a life-sized game.
The relevance of the psychological and transcendental dimensions of the photos, accessed selectively in turn by each viewer, is closely linked to the relativity of the game itself.
The exhibition in Art-House SOMOS is accompanied by an ongoing performance. The kinetik presentation of the photographies is promising a surprise.
