COUP 22 aims at a distribution of hope. Through symbolic systems, I am contributing to 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. I also execute this conversation in relation to ancient masks; art objects with religious significance. In this pursuit, documents of this system are entangling past and future 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.
