Deacon’s Forced into Images series tells the story of a girl born out of the clouds. The girl can be seen with her mother (Lisa Bellear) living in and out of an orphanage and attending a birthday party. The girl encounters a shadowy character, played by David Captain, and ominous situations where things are never quite as they seem. The photographs exist in a strange disjuncture with Deacon’s video work of the same name in which two children act out their adult counterparts by trying on a series of masks.
