Image and Imagination: Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal
Anna Carlevaris, Magazine CIEL VARIABLE, Montreal, Issue 70, Winter 2006, pp. 35-36The subject of sexual violence underscores Deacon’s work and that of fellow Australian Tracey Moffatt in her exquisitely produced reveries of seduction. It is also in After Alice, a two-person show about children and predatory fantasy that includes the Australian Polixeni Papapetrou. The subject of sexual relations appears again most apparently in Karen Brett’s tightly framed, large-scale photographs of older couples’ blushing bodies, and even in Michael Snow’s colossal curtain-piece Powers of Two.
