Zooming in on Jupiter #1: Tarot Reading
Friday 8 February 2019
6 – 7:30 pm
Public Program alongside the solo exhibition of Paul Maheke
The planet Jupiter plays an important role in Paul Maheke's current solo exhibition A fire circle for a public hearing. In a recent interview the artist explains his fascination with Jupiter: "In Astrology, Jupiter is the planet of knowledge, abundance and growth. The planet is very physically complex; it is full of enormous storms of gas and different types of matter and it is one of the biggest planets in our solar system. Within this exhibition, I see Jupiter as an allegory to think about how knowledge can translate into material form. One aspect of the exhibition is a performance that is not always visible, but it is always present. For me, Jupiter’s inclusion in the installation responds directly to the character of the oracle, embodied by one of the performers."
On the occasion of A fire circle for a public hearing Vleeshal invited astrologer and tarot reader Mandy on the Moon to give an insight into the astrological meaning of Jupiter and the influence of Jupiter's position in our birth chart.
