Amanda Moström, Don Joy: Tom of Finland, The Pleasure of Play, 2022

In need of a Saturday read? May we humbly recommend our new issue, featuring, among other treats, a feature dedicated to artists whose work includes their family? This cheeky snapshot is by Amanda Moström, whose practice “mixes sculpture, photography and installation to play with audience expectations,” in the words of Louise Benson. It is taken from the series Don Joy, for which Moström staged members of her family as figures from popular culture “to playfully confront one of the final taboos: incest.” (Here we see her father dressed as Tom of Finland, serving as a sofa for another reader.)
