Residency: September 15 through December 14, 2019
Duroseau create narratives.
She documents, cross-examines and creates cultural hybridizations. She de-contextualizes/re-contextualizes texts, topics, and issues on Black Culture’s constant striving within today’s society.
Her work addresses issues that have remained persistent, morphed, and folds in residuals of colonial influence, women’s issues, and criticism of imperialist white-supremacist patriarchal cultures. She works within the cusp of her cultures as Haitian, American, and African Diaspora, then links unresolved issues across time as a political strategy. This takes into account the nuances of language and mannerisms, while illuminating social issues and injustice, depicting contemporary struggles against indifference, coded vernacular, and entrenched economic dispositions.
