The Tarot of Chance is a work performed for one person at a time. Aided by cards developed by The Big Conversation Space (Niki Korth, San Francisco, and Clémence de Montgolfier, Paris) in collaboration with John Mowitt (Leeds, United Kingdom), The Tarot of Chance is based on the structure and methodology of the Tarot de Marseilles (XVth century), or classical divination tarot.
The Tarot of Chance, however, neither claims nor asserts any connection to the spiritual realm, save that which comes with every human encounter, and aims to serve as a mediator between one’s desires and constraints. The artist serves as a reader and uses chance to propose directions to the participant, in the way one might flip a coin in order to help a decision-making process. It creates a moment of contact and negotiation between signification and interpretation, belief and disbelief, trust and deceit.
The cards for The Tarot of Chance are available for purchase (contact us directly if interested).
Reading sessions of the Tarot of Chance with The Big Conversation Space are available in person in the San Francisco Bay Area or the Paris Metropolitan Area, and virtually anywhere with an Internet or phone connection.
