| Installations shrouded in tales of mystery

For his installations, Jason Dodge (*1969 inPennsylvania) often combines only several objects with a carefully formulated title in order to evoke a cryptic story. At first glance, the works appear to be rudimentary, incomplete; ordinary objects and materials—such as pants pockets, balls of yarn, flutes, or drainpipes—are taken out of their usual context and presented as fragments. By giving them an expressive title, adding a poem, or tacking on a recipe, they also gain new meaning, become part of a past history, a link that occasionally elicits fabulous associations on the part of the viewer.This is the first publication in which Dodge’s works of art are combined with contemporary American poetry and other literary texts, resulting in a portrait-like compendium that reflects his artistic approach.Exhibition schedule: Kunstverein Hannover, February 6–March 28, 2010 | La Galerie, Centre d’art contemporain, Noisy-le-Sec, May 29–July 24, 2010
