All the Wilder is a show in the spirit of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s idea of the rhizome. It is schizophrenic, dense and energetic. It is a playfully, ever-expanding metaphor, a web of interconnected ideas, a rhizome map. It is an experiment in touch with what is real. It aims to construct the unconscious.
Deleuze and Guattari write: “the fabric of the rhizome is the conjunction, “and…and…and…”* All the Wilder is a celebration of this multiplicity.
* Deleuze and Guattari’s “Introduction: Rhizone” from 1000 Plateaus, p. 25
