Procedural Rizhome

Installation - 2018. Matheus Montanari and Nilton Dondé

The installation consists of an arrangement of threads suspended from an embroidered fabric and three photographic series.
The work revisits Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of rhizome.
“An agency is precisely this growth of dimensions in a multiplicity that necessarily changes nature as it increases its connections There are no points or positions in a rhizome as in a structure, a tree, a root. There are only lines."
Deleuze & Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus

This installation was conceived as the union point of the works developed in the group called Poetic Creations, which for 3 months met to discuss and produce art. The installation is formed by words that summarize the experience for each of the participants, embroidered on a single plane, the fabric. 

    From it, multiple lines and connections are propagated, linked to a composition of images made from the digitalization of parts of the bodies of the group members superimposed on selected frames of videos of these bodies working on their artistic productions. The installation creates a space of experimentation and suspension. The lightness of the cloth and the lines contrasts with the hardness of the photographic images and the entanglement that suspends the cloth.
