This exhibition poster took its title inspiration from André Breton’s book Arcane 17, which refers to the seventeenth blade of the tarot, where the emblem of the star appears, and the seventeenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which evokes the tongue in the mouth. Playing on the analogy between the arcane and the letter, Breton puts the woman—symbol of the source of life—at the center of a whole series of correspondences and passionate attractions. She pours water out of her hands.
