As people still use the tarot to have their questions answered, I think of different questions when making creative documents.
It’s important to note: I am relating the tarot to ancient masks. Thanks to this, the process and I are able to create a space in time that symbolizes connectivity. My practice is possible thanks to interactions. For this process, I have used materials such as: remains of painted canvas, paper (colored & painted), and textiles. All material used have a curriculum vitae. They come from communities I interacted with between 2015 and 2018. This is why I am aware that as creator of the collages, I am only one component of the production process. Over time, knowledge and different stories have been distributed through artist in residence and other forms of interaction such as workshops for youth. This metaphoric production refers to networks I had the honer to be part of. It is also my strategy of de-individualization, based on the idea: “l” do not exist.
Documents produced are made in sets of 22. This refers to the Great Arcana of the tarot, a card game dating back to the 15th century. However, the number also reminds me that grandmother is guiding.
