Enquête Arcane

Toan Vu-Huu

⁣Inspired by André Breton’s book «Arcane 17», which refers to the 17th blade of the tarot where the emblem of the star appears and also to the 17th letter of the Hebrew alphabet which evokes, as a sign, the tongue in the mouth. Playing the analogy between the arcane and the letter, Breton puts at the center of a whole series of correspondences and passionate attractions, the woman, symbol of source of life. She pours water out of her hands.⁣
