Daniel Rode works with text fragments found in literature, conversations, and public space, deliberately disregarding syntax such as spaces and line breaks. Interrupting our reading habits, they retain their indeterminacy a little longer before these fragments can be decoded by reading. Detached from their original contexts, they find their way into both large-scale installations and drawings, often created in series. Rode moves between two polar opposites—a sober, reserved aesthetic on the one hand, and a sensitive, almost tender devotion to artistic execution on the other. Again and Again offers a comprehensive insight into Rode’s oeuvre, enriched by perceptive texts by 13 contributors providing an often surprisingly personal perspective on the artist and his work.
