In her most recent work To Hold A Smile , the artist creates a dialogue with three interpretations of the poem The Mask (We Wear The Mask). Originally written by the poet Paul Lawrence Dunbar, reworked by Maya Angelou and then by Michaëlle Sergile, this work creates a new iteration with an emphasis on laughter as a survival device.
