7 of Cups
Pearl C. Hsiung
QUEENS presents 7 of Cups, featuring artworks by Olivia Booth, Nathan Hauenstein, Richard Hawkins, Pearl C. Hsiung, Ian James and Anja Salonen.
In the Rider-Waite tarot deck the 7 of Cups is illustrated with an image of a shadow figure hallucinating seven cups in the sky which all hold different objects, animals and figures in them: a beautiful face with curly hair, a castle, jewels, a shrouded figure with arms outstretched, a laurel wreath with a skull on the cup, a snake, a dragon. It's a card about beginnings, illusions, choices, visions or in reversed, self-delusion and being overwhelmed by options. There are a plethora of choices floating in the sky, ready for you to choose from, to materialize into reality.
7 of Cups is organized around artists and artworks that engage in esoteric practice or alchemical relationships.
