Depending on the number of people involved, we’ll be shuffling Major Arcana Tarot, getting "without the intervention of the conscience" the one that will open the imaginative story of the experience; but we may also discover our personal Tarot from the figure of our date of birth, than directly work with it. In one case or another, the emerged cards will be the subject and the object of an accurate investigation concerning their symbolical implications. Here it is not a matter of belief, here what's at stake is testing any skepticism about the symbolism of Major Arcana Tarot, and even about their ambiguous reputation. We'll start from the beginning, from the relation between trace and hand: the drawing. Arcana Tarot are primarily graphic images as well as psychic-symbolic images, revealing an iconic fairytale where everyone finds its own trajectory. This workshop is a way to share an open, empirical and theorical study on human being: nothing about "fortune-telling", all about a critical and fantastic icon-analysis about ourselves. And as it happens in all the best stories, it ends with a wish."
A philosophical, anthropological and jungian approach to Tarot makes since 6 years my work on Major Arcana a deep creative experience for every people I know, even me. In synergy with the other two workshops (Pandora Vespertina: https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/247509, and Sabina: https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/90217), Imago Pandoro is the act of going deeper in this research, by creating an iconic and critical fairytale about ourselves. That's why Imago Pandoro is focused on the study of Major Arcana essentially as body-images, revealing a story which may inspire an intire life project.
