The American artist Jason Rhoades is known for his associative, life-sized sculptural installations in which he combines conceptual strength with a touch of humour. He utilised an astonishing array of materials and objects from everyday American culture. Rhoades did not allow himself to be pigeonholed as an artist and would flout all of the art world’s aesthetic conventions and rules. His installations were never finished. He treated every piece as a life-long project, continuously adding or removing parts.
