The Oracle Project

January 7th, 2013 § 0 comments

Next month, Tarot enthusiasts in the Middlebrook, Vermont area are in for a treat.

Brooklyn visual and performance artist Eliza Stamps will be presenting her show, The Oracle Project at the Edgewater Gallery.

First created by Stamps in Beijing, she’s performed it multiple times across the U.S. This time though, she’s gone a step further and designed a new 50-card oracle deck specifically for the show.

In The Oracle Project, Stamps uses ‘fortune-telling’ to examine the relationship between art, artists, viewer and meaning. As she describes it, the project is …

“an exploration of how the artist prescribes 
meaning, how the viewer accepts that meaning, and what happens when
 people suspend their better judgment and believe in a little bit of magic.”

Sounds intriguing.

The show opens February 15th and runs through the end of the month.
