Barbara & the Fortuneteller


Barbara and the Fortuneteller. 1971. by Samizu Matsuki. Barbara and the Fortune Teller followed “-opia!”. Barbara is the name of the young lady who modeled for both “-opia! & “Barbara and the Fortuneteller”.

This is a story in which a militantly clad young woman fearfully departs from a fortune teller, representing the form of the establishment as a decorated old woman, leaving behind in her previous seat an artificial flower without leaves, symbolic of the sad incongruity of superficial reality.

Emancipation and accompanying uncertainty is the theme’s pathos.
