(TA)ROT Pack is a facsimile reproduction of the original, which Iannone produced using felt pen on cardboard. The work is designed to appear as a tarot card deck, pairing words with illustrations. The images on the cards, however, are vastly different from those on traditional tarot decks as they depict events, sentiments, or consequences in the life of her lover, artist Dieter Roth. Through her work, Iannone subverts traditional gender ideals of men as creators / women as muses. Iannone consistantly plays the role of the muse, a strategy that allows her to chronicle both the erotic and mundane in her love life. Cards housed in custom wooden box. Library has deluxe edition 8 out of 50. Signed by the artist.
