Tarot reading: Fashioning post-soviet spaces through divination and tarot with Noemi Gunea

Thursday 8th June 2023 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm

You are invited to an intimate, sensorial one-to-one tarot reading with performance artist Noemi Gunea as she interprets her newly created custom major arcana deck, interweaving stories of resistance and revolution with divination, magical imagination, and Eastern European fashion stories. 

In April and May this year, artists Dana Olarescu and Noemi Gunea delivered a series of workshops diving into fashion politics and looking at eco-conscious styles born out of necessity in the communist and pre-communist periods. These workshops informed the genesis of a newly created custom major arcana tarot deck, riffing off Eastern European fashion stories and the everyday experiences of people from post-soviet spaces to imagine, agitate, and dream up better, more sustainable futures. 

Noemi will use the deck as a starting point during the reading, relaying the rousing stories of resistance and revolution behind your selected cards, before posing questions to divine and tease apart the shape and form of what insights might arise for you. 

Come along and join us for one night only at our candle lit tarot table 

Each reading will last approximately 15 minutes in total. You will be able to select your time slot when you book your ticket. 

£3 per reading
