Currently, McCurdy is focusing on exploring the ties between the queer experience and spirituality; starting with their most recent project, ‘Queer Oracle’, a deck of oracle cards made with drag artist Mystika Glamoor. The project was made for their final year of university which was severely affected by COVID-19 with the lockdown restricting previously planned shoots. Working with what little they had the deck turned digital to accommodate the restrictions and open the project to being more accessible as many exhibition spaces remain closed.
The cards still carry their original meanings from the traditional major arcana but now with the added aspect of the queer experience. We follow a beings 'coming out', what they have to confront during that time and what we could learn from this ourselves.
The deck can be split into three threes, each group referencing a plane, from Earth to the wider universe.
The cards invite the viewer to take a moment of reflection and connect with themselves during the stressful modern times.
