Jason Dodge “We are the meeting.” in Artforum

“His concentration on place was reinforced throughout the Kaplan show as well-particularly in the brass tubes and electric wiring in the galleries that were so typical and yet so unnoticed; the woody smell, emanating from an unspecified place or object, that permeated the galleries; the pillow as the alleged site of a famed figure’s sleep; and the portal-like doors. Particularly with the last, Dodge focused the viewer’s attention on distinct yet adjacent places, on what may seem related but are actually unlike, in ways that recall how his work negotiates the kinship and discrepancies between stanza and sculpture.” – Lauren O’Neill
