The Unveiling of Michelle duBois

“Since acquiring the archive, Crosher has moved through evolving iterations of exploration, highlighting the strategies and structures of fantasy as much as they expose anything concrete about Ms. duBois herself. Crosher has created new works which emphasize the impossibility of knowing oneself, even after an endless accumulation of images. Early approaches often involved the simple act of selecting and grouping images to focus attention on recurring patterns and references.”
