River Oracle
As water, we all owe ourselves to other bodies of water. As water, we all eventually pass our waters on. Even while in constant motion, water is also a planetary archive of meaning and matter. To drink a glass of water is to ingest the ghosts of bodies that haunt that water.
Astrida Neimanis

The River Oracle is meant to be a situating tool for self reflection, asking questions to the river, wondering what it can tell us. The cards are trying to find their way into material reality through you. We are not particularly interested in thinking about the oracle as a tool to predict your future. What we actually want is for you to connect with your present, with a sense of deep knowledge, in order to embrace (self-) awareness. The cards are printed by water and infused with stories created by an encounter of artists in the riverine ecology of the Rhein.

Project developed by Paloma Ayala, Anne-Laure Franchette, and Riikka Tauriainen within the frame of Tauriainen's exhibition INTIMACY OF STRANGERS
