Zeljkovision Tarot Parlor

Zeljko McMullen opens the doors of his installation, the Zeljkovision Tarot Parlor, dedicated to the contemplation of cosmic polarities. The video and music in McMullen's "parlor" are mandalas derived from recordings of live rituals invoking the 22 Major Arcana of the Tarot. His immersive experience also utilizes textiles, drawings, personal and religious memorabilia, and 400 lbs. of salt.

Through the 27th, McMullen accepts appointments inside his space at the Clocktower for personal tarot readings, spiritual guidance, and meditative inebriation. To RSVP, email him at zeljko@shinkoyo.com.

McMullen's work provides a release from the information saturation of present-day society, through projections from multiple sources which collide in one focal point, to create a new compound reality. "In my work, I utilize sounds and images to deconstruct the present space of the experiencer, replacing it with a perpetually shifting mythical architecture." McMullen dips in and out of every medium possible and creates musical recordings, video rituals, and performance pieces pertaining to metaphysical and philosophical archetypes.

Born in Massillon, Ohio, McMullen received his BFA from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and studied at Bard for his MFA. Since, his work has been exhibited at many established galleries in New York, as well as China, Germany, Norway, U.K and Spain. From September 6th 2006 until April 2010 he co-curated Paris London New York West Nile performance space and gallery.
