Uncomfortable and tenacious conversations are often the mode through which Deborah interrogates words and their meaning(s); her speakers and participants with varying amounts of willingness to engage in this. Some of these moments have been captured and formed the basis for video work such as ‘from me with Rose’ where the artist sits down with her mother, seemingly inaccessible through Deborah’s attempts though far from impartial, allowing truths unsought to reveal themselves amid the unresolved and the riddled. Deborah’s methods have included script, prompts, and improvisations, at times punctuating with superimposed imagery to steepen the visibility of social dynamics and themes underlying, while pushing assumed roles and settings onto an incline.
