Like much of the artist's work, this multiple employs everyday objects to create a subtle intervention in its environment. Comprising a flute suspended from a piece of sterling silver wire, it is intended to be attached to a doorknob, where one can use it to approximate the pitch of squeaks emitted by the opening and closing of the door.Read Less
About the Artist
About Jason Dodge
The lengthy titles of Dodge's works often attest to the significance of process in his art: for instance, a seemingly simple bolt of fabric bears the title In Lubeck, Germany, Mariele Scholtz Wove a Piece of Cloth. She Was Asked to Choose Yarn the Color of Night and Equalling the Distance (12km) From the Earth to Above the Weather (2008)—describing the instructions that the artist gave the fabricator. Others are more elusive, their import revealed only after the viewer has explored the work more closely, as in Your Death, Submarine, Copper Pipes Connected to Water (2009), for which Dodge installed a copper pipe throughout the length of the gallery connected to the building's water system, giving visitors the ability to flood the space by turning a valve.
Dodge's work has been exhibited extensively, including in solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Dusseldorf, CAC Vilnius in Lithuania, and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. His work has also been included in numerous group shows, including the 2012 Paris Triennale (curated by Okwui Enwezor), the 30th São Paulo Biennial (2012), The Workers at MASS MoCA (2011), Language of Less (Then & Now) at the MCA Chicago (2011), and The Quick and the Dead (curated by Peter Eleey) at the Walker Art Center (2009).
