Directors Spotlight

Jordan Deal


Jordan Deal, also known as ROSEKILLJUPITER, is a Philadelphia-based multidisciplinary practitioner. Their investigative practice uses performance, sound, and image as a conduit between unseen forces and the materializations of socio-political structures. They have been expanding on the use of storytelling as the accumulation of Black and Indigenous mythologies, collective memory, queer intimacy, and celebration as a generative, subversive and healing material. Through using the interflux of collected field recordings, video/film documenta, and real-time mythological fabrication, Deal explores dialectics, borders and territories; deadundead knowledge; and counter-active channels of potentiality that exists outside of global colonialism and imperialism’s frameworks and mappings.
