Opening Reception on Friday 26 January 2018 // 6-9PM

In Italo Calvino’s Castle of Crossed Destinies, knights meet at a table d’hôtes, but when they attempt to tell tales of their adventures, words mysteriously fail them. They then resort to a game of tarot. As each card is drawn, the knights give them meaning and reveal their stories. Forgive us, as it is the simple pleasure of the reference and the beauty of the title which makes us gather these four artists under the famous oulipian (inverted) banner.

Opening performance at 8pm: Jane Zingale will read from Guy de Cointet’s publication, Espahor Ledet Ko Uluner!, 1973.
