Jordan Deal employs personal, spiritual, and socio-political narratives that examine birth, death, rebirth, and the performative roles of the body in relation to systems of governance and race. Their work investigates the mind/body dichotomy as a fertile site of collective healing and time-space travel. The mystical is explored through the quotidian—household objects are transformed into conduits for healing and transcendence. Their videos consider how love, death, and other aspects of the personal reflect what it means to be Black in America.
