Detective Special Prudence Murphy
In her new series, Detective Special, artist Prudence Murphy builds upon her photographic inquiry into domestic rituals and the gestural acts of playtime by considering the role of social conditioning.Photographically depicting fragments of guns and reflecting on their social significance and modes of operation, Detective Special conceptually shifts gears by moving away from Murphy's previous focus of playtime in the personal domestic realm to understanding its effects in society at large.By presenting arsenal in lieu of their complete forms, Murphy's most recent body of work favours a fragmented approach to the documentation of her subject that intricately outlines the slippery terrain it occupies as a societal norm.
