The Celebrity Tarot Deck is a novel interpretation of Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot into an ephemeral and superficial world of paparazzi and celebrity phenomena.
All 78 cards of the traditional deck, including their ancient and deep-rooted symbols, star signs and planets, have been systematically translated into a contemporary celebrity context.
Through a simple, yet precise divination ritual, each selected celebrity „chose“ their respective character/position in the new deck.
Online gossip imagery, -an infinite source of inspiration and production, has been digitally altered and re-composed.
The resulting collages exhibit novel ways of interpretations and divinations. Each celebrity transcends into a world of ancient symbols and signs weaving their highly superficial and clichéd public image into the multi-layered web of traditional meanings. Every card and its according divination represent the artists‘ own reflections and interpretations of the public celebrity image.
