Jovan C. Speller (born Los Angeles, California, 1983). Fiber print on archival photograph titled "From My View," 2021. In "Eulogy," the mixed media series from which this work is drawn, Jovan C. Speller considers passages of reincarnation. Hovering between departure and arrival, "From My View" materializes a body as it transitions from one life to the next, while accepting the unreliability of memory and the myths that arise in their absence. Speller is a multidisciplinary artist, archivist, and radical homesteader based in rural Minnesota. Her artwork, which primarily evolves from her photography practice, interprets historic narratives through contemporary discourse to elevate, complicate, and invent stories that capture ancestry, engage legacy, and reimagine liberation. Exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions, Speller's visual works and installations are held in private collections, as well as the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Minnesota Museum of American Art. She is a recipient of multiple grants and fellowships, including the McKnight Visual Artist Fellowship. Height: 25 in x width: 24 in.
