Jason Rhoades’ Installations

When I visited the Hauser & Wirth gallery in LA, the colorful and playful neon signs and funky installations immediately caught my attention. Stepping into Rhoades’ politically charged, taboo-highlighting space and actively interacting with his art was definitely an interesting experience. I personally couldn’t figure out how I felt or what I was supposed to feel when I walked around a room full of neon signs spelling out slangs for women’s genitalia. I think this experience can be summed up into these words:

“These installations of total experience attract, then repulse, then mystify the viewer, igniting questions that multiply with prolonged exposure to the artist’s work.” (www.hauserwirthlosangeles.com)
