This essay looks at the poetics of visual art as represented in Tarot cards. It combines strategies of 'reading' with a Marseille deck with a perspective from storytelling in the manner of novelist Italo Calvino and philosopher Jacques Derrida. The focus is on death as art and as a form of derailing traditional epistemic knowledge from its 'reality' or its basic condition for articulation and representation.
