Destiny Deacon is a descendant of the KuKu (Far North Queensland) and Erub/Mer (Torres Strait) people. Since the 1990s Deacon’s work has been primarily involved with performative photography, exploring Indigenous identity with often provocative and humorous imagery that mocks and satirises clichéd and racist stereotypes. Partly autobiographical and partly fictitious, Deacon’s work is an insightful comedy that is effective in establishing a discourse about political, Indigenous and feminist concerns.
