Volitia in Spring | Melissa Marks & Victoria Loustalot

Join us for champagne in the garden to celebrate Planthouse’s new broadside poster Meeting Volitia, an essay by Victoria Loustalot, published in conjunction with the exhibition Melissa Marks: Volitia Returns.”In a radical moment made of ambition and luck, Volitia, a detachable drip/mutable blob/Pollock leftover, caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror and became self-aware.”
Melissa Marks“It’s the moment in the cartoon with the stars and the tornado and the exclamation point and the cymbals crashing and the sky imploding when the ordinary goes to chaos . . .”
