'I think blak dolls represent us as people, I don't think white Australia, or whatever you want to call it, sees us as people.' Destiny Deacon 1993
'Dolls are silent reminders of childhood, but Deacon gives voice to her dolls by communicating feelings… these dolls are decapitated, amputated or contorted, thereby becoming animated and expressive characters in Deacon's psychodramas. In doing so, they confront prejudice and inequality in their inimitable way.'
Natalie King in 'Destiny Deacon: walk & don't look blak', Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney 2004
