22+1 Photo-installation and ongoing performance by Viviana Druga & Tata Christiane post by GRIFFIN

Dear Shaded Viewers,



Photo-installation and ongoing performance by Viviana Druga & Tata Christiane

During the past two years Viviana Druga & 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 private mythologies and those of their subjects who were selectively drawn from family, friends, and acquaintances.

Vast eras and auras are being bridged in the '22+1' series of art tarot cards. Archetypal symbolism is revived and reinterpreted in 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 SomoS is accompanied by an ongoing performance. The kinetic presentation of the photographs promises to be surprising.
