TOBI DEESON
In general Tobi Deeson's work is concerned with the consequences of other
peoples’ actions. Our fragility is our strength, our acceptance of our history vital.
she replays situations from her childhood or from those of childhood victims and
attempt to explore, or just dwell, on their emotions, then and now. She wants to
communicate the consequences that childhood experiences have on our adult
lives, to expose the scars and mourn the losses.
