Forced Into Images is a selection of works from Destiny Deacon‘s celebrated 2001 series that have recently entered the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) collection. The photographs of Forced Into Images tell a 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.
