For his 2013 exhibition “Concrete Forms,” Jason Kraus constructed five pairs of pedestals, contained in wooden boxes with instructions on how to assemble them and what objects to set atop each one—in this case, a can of spray paint and another complementary object of the installer’s choosing.
Each pedestal: 65.25 x 8 x 8 in.

About Jason Kraus
Jason Kraus’s installations and sculptures explore the ways in which objects become evidence or remnants of actions and events. Though Kraus sometimes produces his artworks via performance, the performance itself is frequently done in private with limited disclosure, while the resulting objects are exhibited to the public. For example, Primary Explosions (2007) is comprised of the photographs of an event in which he exploded a number of cakes in a closed room. A theme in this and many of his other works is the generic nature or the repetitive appearance of everyday objects. In one of his best-known series of works, made in 2009, Kraus re-cast the forms of damaged motorcycle parts from collision accidents in multiple mediums, frequently in clear plastic and cement.
