JASON DODGE

Born in 1969 in Newton, Pennsylvania, Jason Dodge lives and works in New York and Copenhagen. Dodge received his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (1992) and his MFA from Yale (1996), and he has studied in independent programmes in Florence, Italy and Malawi, Mali. Dodge’s work frequently deals with objects that contain a particular aesthetic and meaning in various cultures, such as the Burberry plaid blankets and luxurious silk cushions bedecking his installation at the Casey Kaplan Gallery (2000), which he uses to create narratives from both fiction and reality, in that instance of an abandoned love affair in the aristocratic luxury of a fictional 5-Star hotel. Two of his most notable exhibitions have been On the Longest Day, I know it’s You, Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo (2000), and Helsinki, Casey Kaplin Gallery, New York (1998). He has had solo shows in New York, Stockholm, Nice, Tokyo, Berlin and Basel, as well as many international group shows, with work in permanent collections such as the Moderna Museet, Sweden and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
