Destiny Deacon and Virginia Fraser

Using quotidian formats such as snapshot photography and home-made video, and performance modes that reference vaudeville and minstrel shows, Destiny Deacon’s works amplify and deconstruct stereotypes of Indigenous identity and national history. Working in collaboration with Virginia Fraser, heir project for Melbourne Now comprises a trailer for a non-existent film noir, photographs and a carnivalesque diorama, creating playful political critiques underscore a prevailing sense of postcolonial unease.
