“I’m exploring the relationship between [text and image], which I see as being inflective rather than representative of one another. In the works using a scanner, where I scan a specific object and correlate that to text, it can be seen as illustrative or metaphorical, which are two things I’m working against and why I have kept them separate. With my photography there is more complexity to the images. They are un-constructed scenes photographed in the world, which can exist within the same space as my writing without falling into being understood as metaphor.” Dena Yago in conversation with Marie Heilich • BOMB
