Additional Information: Desire Lines /Tarot & Chess/ (2016), portrays the universal patterns of human behaviour and their relationship to past, present and future, looking through the prism of literary expressions articulated by Italo Calvino in his book 'The Castle of Crossed Destinies' (1973). In Calvino’s book “through the sequence of the pictures stories are told, which the written word tries to reconstruct and interpret.” In Desire Lines /Tarot & Chess/ the stories are told by sequences of moving images and fragmented speech. The interpretations of the tarot cards allude to classic tales such as Faust, Oedipus, and Shakespearean narratives such as Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear.
