Zoe Crosher

Zoe Crosher is an artist who works out of New York City. Most recently, she has been conceptually mapping and ‘pre-archiving’ L.A. and the troubled notion of the “West”, culminating in a solo exhibition of her Prospecting Palm Fronds work (bronzing fallen palm fronds collected from all around Los Angeles) at the Aspen Art Museum in 2017-2018. Her iterative and multi-faceted projects explore overlooked and forgotten histories, both real and manufactured, and concern the schism of photographic documentary—the interstice between the presumption and promise of truth and what that reality actually is. Crosher’s practice engages with this confusion, questioning the assumption of ‘The Real’, often collapsing and confusing fiction and reality.
