“Deanna Bowen’s video installation, milk-fed, stands out by pushing deeper into the terror at the core of many works. Food, family and sexual role-playing form an aural and visual abomination of Leviticus concoction. The video oscillates between a black screen story of the tormented milk-fed boy and a close-up real-time record of bacon frying, accompanied by a self-justifying account of a daddy-baby girl relationship. More liquid than its stark compartments might initially suggest, the piece is an astounding balance of conceptual clarity and emotional power.”  – Kathleen Pirrie Adams, Xtra, 1997
