After the October exhibition Rhizome’0002 “The Indian Summer”, the February exhibition Rhizome’0003 “Liberty” will encapsulate a vision of our era & its multiples way of representing freedom.
Several UK based artists will respond to this invitation with site-specific art works & in situ installations. 
A fusion of conceptual art, raw & participatory installations, photographs, sculptures, drawings, texts…A multidisciplinary exhibition, a must…
 
 
Principles:
Deleuze and Guattari introduced A Thousand Plateaus by outlining the concept of the rhizome (quoted from A Thousand Plateaus):
• 1 and 2: Principles of connection and heterogeneity: “…any point of a rhizome can be connected to any other, and must be,”

•3. Principal of multiplicity: only when the multiple is effectively treated as a substantive, “multiplicity” that it ceases to have any relation to the One

•4. Principle of a signifying rupture: a rhizome may be broken, but it will start up again on one of its old lines, or on new lines
• 5 and 6: Principle of cartography and decalcomania: a rhizome is not amenable to any structural or generative model; it is a “map and not a tracing”
(Quotes by Wikipedia) “The concept of the Rhizome as developed by Deleuze and Guattari in A Thousand Plateaus is highly relevant to a discussion of a shifting configuration of media-elements; a conflation of language systems.
 
With artists exhibiting; Alex Fox, Chris Woltman, Daniella Valz-Gen, Geraldine Gallavardin,  Ludovic Pujol/Skew Wiff, Ram Samocha, Stella Grasso, Zucky Serper…
 
On the opening night our special guess the City of London Tour Guide Grethe Hauge will give a talk about St John's (Sir John Soane listed building Church)!
 
Artists performing on the Thursday 5th of March – 6 – 10pm; Dagmar Zeromska, Connie Luk, Geraldine Gallavardin, Ian Smith, Jude Cowan Montague, Ludovic Pujol/Skew Wiff, Mark Browne, Oliver Evelyn-Rahr
 
The idea of Lab 451London is that of a moveable laboratory for international artists to express & emphasize through their own unique art form; a language, whom as a Freedom embodies the way we see & represent the world around us.
 
The title refers to the dystopian novel from the American writer Ray Bradbury published in 1953 during the McCarthy era & the French New Wave filmmaker François Truffaut who wrote & directed a film adaptation of that novel in 1966.

 
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there.
 
It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”


― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451.
