“In 2020, Juliette Blightman (b. 1980) invited Dorothy Iannone (b. 1933) to work on a collaborative exhibition for the Kölnischer Kunstverein.

The work (Ta)Rot Pack (1968–69) by Iannone is the seed for this three-part project: ‘Love is the inspiration of my work. I made (Ta)Rot Pack, a series of 27 cards depicting the life of Dieter Roth, my beloved and my muse, in the early period of our relationship.’

The (Ta)Rot Pack led Juliette Blightman to the idea of another version of the Tarot cards, her series ‘Stages of Seed Development’ (2020). She says, ‘I replicate the original Tarot cards, titling each work after one of the major arcana, using different motifs that reoccur in my work.

This publication can be seen as the everlasting manifestation on this exhibition project in the juxtaposition of the Tarot cards of both artists.”

Two artists, each in their own style, reinterpret the major arcana cards of the traditional Tarot deck, which represent stages in a life journey; with an introduction by museum directors Nikola Dietrich and Roos Gortzak as well as essays by Michael Glasmeier and Amelia Stein, text in English and German, soft cover, 32 x 24 cm, 132 not numbered pages, ed/500, Köln 2020
