Forced Into Images
Presenting a selection of photographic works and a video from Destiny Deacon’s celebrated 2001 series Forced Into Images. The photographs tell the story of a woman’s life from birth to adulthood. Presented in fragments, the narrative largely takes place in a staged domestic space, populated by family members and dolls, and carefully chosen props. What is real and what is imaged is unclear, creating a realm of memories, desires, traumas, and hopes. The works have recently entered the museum’s permanent collection.
