“Make a map, not a tracing. The orchid does not reproduce the tracing of the wasp; it forms a map with the wasp, in a rhizome…The map does not reproduce an unconscious closed in upon itself; it constructs the unconscious… It fosters connections between fields It is itself a part of the rhizome.”
-Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Mille plateaux, 1980
Thvm proudly presents “Mille plateaux, A Nomadic Experience,” featuring work by Russian born and based artists, Vlad Kulkov and Marya Dmitrieva. For their first solo exhibition in the United States, Kulkov and Dmitrieva intertwine thier respective styles to create a site-specific installation. This is an aesthetic journey that derives its conceptual basis from the pervading theory of rhizomes, explored in the eponomously named text, Mille plateaux by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. In a horticultural sense, rhizomes are the below surface horizontal splay of roots, each with offshoots creating a uniquely, meandering path. This biologybased analogy, reflects the in-between stasis of interconnectivity. As explored with the waspʼs discreet connection to the orchid, the affect is not readily manifested. Yet, it is still unquantifiable in its significance. It is this intangible weaving and diverting, which makes all organic elements and pulsating organisms the affecter and effectee. Kulkov and Dmitrieva eradicate the need for beginning or end. Here, is a vision that illuminates the in-between and enigmatic. As the artistsʼ note, “Presented are endless quantities of actualization. The body of “Mille plateaux,” is a symbolic surface of moments.”
