JASON RHOADES: PEAROEFOAM. Julien Bismuth. David Zwirner, New York, 2015. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 144 pp. with 80 col. ills. 31 x 21 cm. ISBN 9781941701072 In English.
Publisher's description: In 2002 Jason Rhoades (1965-2006) introduced the world to PeaRoeFoam, a "brand new product and revolutionary new material" created from green peas, salmon eggs and white foam. When combined with glue, they transform into a versatile, fast-drying and durable material that he intended for both utilitarian as well as artistic uses. This publication examines and situates the PeaRoeFoam project within Rhoades' career and acknowledges its importance within the framework of his practice. It discusses and reproduces its initial three public presentations and includes archival documents and photographs, installation views of all three shows, as well as diagrams and drawings related to their creation. Also featured are a revealing personal essay by David Zwirner, who began showing Rhoades' work in the early 1990s, new scholarship by Julien Bismuth and selected interviews from the Jason Rhoades Oral History project, conceived by Lucas Zwirner and Dylan Kenny, who have interviewed over 50 artists, curators, friends, collaborators, art historians and others who knew the artist.
