The miracles


The miracles



"The Miracles is an ensemble of thirty-seven images conceptualised, produced and framed by artist deborah Kelly with the assistance of photographer and lighting designer Alex Wisser. the works engage with ?old Master? painting ? the Holy Family of the european renaissance becomes a contemporary emblem of art, science and sexual politics, for each photograph depicts the family of a child conceived through assisted reproductive technologies (Art), and posed as though for a renaissance tondo. Both the families and the art have been subjected to interrogation, the former for being non-traditional, the latter for possible ?impurity?."
"Moreland City Council."
