Installation at A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn NY
(2018 reinstalled smaller version at Aegean Center for Fine Arts, Paros, Greece)
Summary: Fugitive Love Song documents Dodge’s 2016 guerrilla art project carried out in locations throughout Los Angeles. For 366 days, using lipstick, spray paint, markers and printed flyers, Dodge surreptitiously (and sometimes shamelessly) spread a singular message: “# Just the way you are.” By distilling a potent message of affirmation through this iconic song lyric, Dodge used her public intervention to insert small, fleeting moments of joy into the otherwise chaotic tempo of everyday life.
Materials: photographs, thread, mirrors, spray paint, paint makers, map pins.
