Jason Dodge’s (b. 1969, lives and works in Berlin, Germany) sculpture practice adjusts our material world to build moments of narrative, connection and potential through the lens of natural phenomena. Dodge brings attention back to the alchemical process of things, bringing a mystic contemplation to the otherwise banal and overlooked.
Jason Dodge received a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore (1992), and a MFA from Yale University School of Art, New Haven (1996). His recent solo exhibitions include Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, Chicago (2018); the Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2017); IAC – Institut d’Art Contemporain de Villeurbanne (2016) and he co-curated Enemy of the Stars with Krist Gruijthuijsen at KW Institute, Berlin (2017).
