Paul McCarthy, Jason Rhoades: Shit Plug
This artist’s book – a joint collaboration between Paul McCarthy and Jason Rhoades – accompanied the 2002 exhibition at Galerie Hauser & Wirth of the same name. What is special about the collaboration of Paul McCarthy and Jason Rhoades is that they are neither an artist duo in the classic sense, nor are their projects restricted to a limited time frame. Rather, the projects are pursued over years, taken up again and again and further developed, sometimes branching off into new projects. From intensive phases of working together, the artists transport ideas into their own personal cosmos, yet each artist always remains recognizable as individual.
