COUP 22 (2020)

COUP 22 aimed at the distribution of hope. Through symbolic systems, I contribute the decade for people of African Descent (2015-2024). This spell, creating collages as reflections, dialogues with the main deck of tarot (Great Arcana) and my late Grand Mother and is brought in relation to ancient masks; art objects with religious significance. In this sense, documents of this system aim at entangling the past and the future represented in the present. 

During production, I worked in sets of 22; to which I refer to as ‘documents with spirits’. An approach deriving from The Great Arcana that indicates a secret. In the ritual, the secret is a community in conversation: an “illusional reality” of connectedness shaping the process.
