Join us for an in-person artist talk on Thursday, May 11, 6pm-7:30pm with exhibiting artist Michelle LaSalle in conjunction with her exhibition The surety of more-than-one. The event is in-person and free to attend.
Faire des doubles – The surety of more than one reflects on the slippery moments that link personal memories to the objects and images we archive. These works arise out of an intuitive investigation into the stories our collections might tell. They are a tribute to the passage of time and the traces it leaves on our objects and ourselves. The process was an unearthing of memories and their objects, objects and their memories, as ritual and artistic practice—opening a long-sealed box, developing an unknown roll of film, remembering details, attempting to thread them together only to miss the needle’s eye, and then giving it another go.
