Arachnomancy Cards Lecture of Arachnomancy Cards

Tomás Saraceno, Arachnomancy Cards, 2019

Each room in the exhibition is linked to one of the artist’s Arachnomancy Cards-invitations to attune to our sympoetic futures, and to celebrate the radical interconnectedness of all things, both living and nonliving. One of the rooms hosts a complete set of the thirty-three Arachnomancy Cards.

From Monday 7 September, every Monday from 17.30 to 19.30, you can attend an individual interpretation of the cards with Gestalt psychotherapist Dr. Gianmarco Meucci. Inspired in part by the practice of nggám, or spider divination, in the Mambila tribe of Cameroon and Nigeria, during which questions are asked of a grounddwelling spider who submits an answer by rearranging an arachnomancer’s ‘divination cards,’ our Arachnomancy cards thinks through the oracular capabilities of the spider/web, whose vibrational world may open it to knowledge we don’t have access to.
