RHIZOSPHERE: Directions in Motion

The 4th 4482 [sasapari] exhibition is the annual showcase for Korean contemporary artists living and working in London.

at Bargehouse

This year, entitled Rhizosphere: Directions in Motion (curated by Gyeyeon Park), presents the latest work from 60 artists at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf.

A ‘Rhizome’ is a subterranean stem spreading out in any direction. It is a system of connections with no hierarchy and no order. With its features of connectivity, heterogeneity and multiplicity, the concept of rhizome was explored by Deleuze and Guattari in their book, A Thousand Plateaus. 4482 is a continually evolving voluntary group of artists and the works cover a wide variety of themes, ways of expression and mediums. ‘Rhizo + Sphere’ refers to both the space and time of the exhibition.

Many of the works reflect both the artists' internal (philosophy and faith) and external (social and environmental) influences intertwined. In this group exhibition, seemingly disparate artworks are linked by themes or materials and these connections suggest an endless network of possibilities and ideas.

Curator Gyeyeon Park who has organised the exhibition since 2010, states that “these artworks are not only inspired by being made in London, but as rhizome transforms the soil, by its very existence, this exhibition alters London.”
