"At first glance, everything seems normal about The Resurrection of Dead Masters. Just an entrance to any generic store downtown. But then suddenly strong knocks come from behind the inner door, along with heavy metal tunes. The vibrating heavy shakes are in perfect sync with the music playing replace the singing. The physical effect is overwhelming. The door is locked, and the procedure occurs in loops. Rodeh’s The Resurrection of Dead Masters continues her investigation of the interrelations between sculpting and the perception of space on the one hand, and music and sound on the other—at times complementing each other, at other times seeking to break each other apart." —Ran Kasmi Ilan

The Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon commissioned the work for “Deviants”, a group show curated by Ran Ksami Ilan in 2012. Later that year, the work was presented as an offsite project at Plug-In ICA, Winnipeg, Canada. In 2019, it was included in “In the Spotlight of the Night: Life in the Gloom”, a group show at Museum Marta Herford, Germany, as well as in “Wilds Ago: Phantoms of Youth from the Haaretz Collection”, Tel Aviv IL.
