In an immersive exhibition of six installations is “Jason Rhoades: Installations, 1994-2006” at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles. Each room is composed of one installation. Visitors are allowed to walk through the installations. In some of the rooms the blue print drawings of the work are on view, showing the artistic process of Rhoades. His works are politically charged relating to issues of stereotypes of cultures and women. My favorite work is “My Madinah. In pursuit of my ermitage…” The interactive installation pays homage to Rhoades’s own pilgrimage from Los Angeles to Mecca, California. This work resembles a temple and a mosque as it provides a critical commentary on how society perceives temples and mosques. The floor is made of overlaid towels held together with what appears to be drizzled glue. Visitors are invited to walk barefoot across the floor, seeing the work from different angels. Various ceramic objects, a box and a stool are located on the carpet. Suspended from the ceiling are 240 neon lights with crude phrases for female genitalia such as “magic cave,” “tuna taco,” “pussy” and “hot rocket.”

In the Book & Printed Matter Lab at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles is a display of photographs from the Icelandic town of Seydisfjördur. The photographs are not displayed in the traditional manner of ink on paper, rather the photographs are shown on the wall by four projectors. Created by Dieter Roth, his two sons Björn and Karl and Pal Magnússon, the photographs depict the Icelandic landscape, houses and roads. In an adjacent display are notes and the original photographic prints, allowing visitors to see the archived materials.
