RHIZOM is the dynamic exhibition series and platform of 8B.
RHIZOM(e) is a reference to the horizontal world view of Gilles Deleuze in which time and place emerges through relations and as part of a network. RHIZOM points to art as a network of roots that grow from below and outwards in all directions. The narrative is created in action, in the encounter between artists and between materials, while interpretation is an active, sensory selection. With RHIZOM as the first part of exhibition titles it can be seen as a network of exhibition sites that pop up at various locations as opportunities arise in random encounters between visual artists away from home and with a basis in materiality. RHIZOM is an exhibition site that has grown out of an artist-in-residence program for visual artists temporarily expressing themselves in clay and thread.
