Jibade-Khalil Huffman Biography

Jibade-Khalil Huffman is an artist and writer whose video and photo works use found, archival material and contemporary ephemera to address slippage in memory and language, particular to race and visibility. Lyrical strophes of text and densely-composed imagery produce objects of perpetual flux, indexed by accumulating layers which challenge normative symbolic and semiotic hierarchies. Through projection and repetition, Huffman's work evokes the untranslatable, ruminating on the liminal qualities of singular experiences through narrative and graphic rhythms.
