Summary

Jason Rhoades' work has its origins in the late nineteen eighties and early nineteen nineties when he studied at the University of California in Los Angeles under Richard Jackson and Paul McCarthy. This was a time when the Southern Californian performance scene began to open itself up to exhibition events and the art market in New York and Europe. Rhoades included performative elements in his spatial installations and developed his own thematic cycles of works from it. His sculptural language is trained on elements of mass culture and evolved metaphors by means of great physical exertions which in their temporality and singularity signify the unfulfilled desires for spiritual insight. Despite his early death, Jason Rhoades (19652007) left behind a prolific sculptural oeuvre. For the first time, Eva Meyer-Hermann chronologically traces the total development and provides exemplary interpretations of this seemingly inextricable work comprising installations that fill entire halls. English and German text.
