The Unraveling of Michelle duBois aka “Alice Johnson” is a print-on-demand limited-edition artist book. It is the second in a four-volume set by the artist Zoe Crosher.
Zoe Crosher’s The Archives of Michelle duBois, Vols. 1-4 is a reconsidered archive culled from crates, boxes, and albums consisting of endless flirtatious smiles, tourist shots, cheesecake mementos, and suggestive poses, in every film type and size.
Identical in structure, each volume offers an alternate perspective on the archive of Michelle duBois, an enigmatic collection of images bequeathed to the artist by the subject and compiler. In each subsequent volume, Crosher configures a new set of identities and meanings for this ephemeral archive of photographic detritus, through a selection of unique sets of images, reinterpretations of photos seen in previous volumes, as well as new texts. Volumes one through four will be released sequentially every few months; each volume is limited to ten copies. Each book includes a unique-to-the-volume 8 × 10 inch signed and numbered print.
