Debbie Morag’s work challenges perspective.
The adolescent body tries to converge and defend against the hazards of time. It guards itself, wrapped in synthetic membranes. It seeks to return to the fetal space that is revealed to be an alienated space, lacking warmth and touch. The body’s vulnerability requires its isolation, and Debbie offers a direct look, integrating cruelty and compassion, on the dissonance that emerges in our real life: do we have to stop living in order to exist?
