DOMINIQUE DUROSEAU

ARTIST STATEMENT

I create narratives. I document, cross-examine, create cultural hybridizations.
I de-contextualize/re-contextualize texts, topics, and issues on Black Culture’s constant striving within today’s society.
I work within the cusp of her cultures as Haitian, American, and African Diaspora, then link 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.

The issues addressed in my works may at first seem outdated and irrelevant, but instead have actually remained persistent, and morphed. The work folds in residuals of colonial influence, women's issues, and criticism of imperialist white-supremacist patriarchal cultures.
