Gilles Drouault galerie/multiples, Paris
On the occasion of Art-O-Rama Gilles Drouault galerie/multiples presents one specific and singular work by Jason Dodge. The specificity of this work is that it is an exhibition, so the singularity of the exhibition is to be the work itself, defined by different elements. The exhibition is composed of a set of specific objects: 20 Bayer Aspirin advertisements, a flyer to find a missing animal, loose Marigold petals, electric batteries, forks and fabric, and a shopping list. Depending on the location of the exhibition, in this case a booth at Art-O-Rama, Jason Dodge delivers the installation to an artist (dancer, visual artist, poet) or a person involved in contemporary art (critic or curator). The role of this person is to acquire on the spot all the items on the shopping list (found in the street in Berlin), to install them in the exhibition space, and to distribute also the marigold, the rubber bands, the forks and the fabric as he/she wishes. It is thus each time an interpretation of Jason Dodge’s work that is given to the spectator. The work exists as an object and intention, it is realized in its
The person who will interpret Jason Dodge’s work/exhibition in Marseille will be Jason Dodge’s choice.
By purchasing, the collector acquires all the elements of the work, it remains for him to interpret it.
