SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST:

Considering appearance, disappearance, and interiority, the doors of Krowswork have been completely covered and closed for the duration of gallery hours Saturday, February 21. The resident will be inside reading. The texts she is reading have been made available to gallery visitors outside.

Anne Lesley Selcer's work is generated largely through the tension between image and language. This disruption is a conceptual enactment of this process.

These are the texts that were read:
