Iman Person is an interdisciplinary artist of color based in Atlanta, Georgia. Employing ritual consciousness, primordial memory and referencing anthropological customs, she employs natural materials to create a hybrid reality between physical space and the ethereal.

In 2010, Person obtained a B.F.A from Georgia State University and exhibited widely as well as working in public space. In 2012, she was included in Barbara Archer Gallery’s “Talent Loves Company,” and named one of the 30 most influential artists in Atlanta. She is a member of the Atlanta based collective “Dashboard Co-Op.” Fellowships the artist received include Hambidge (2011) and Walthall (2013-2014).

May 5th 2017, Iman Person presented her performance “Mother Tongue” at SomoS.

My work engages with the dichotomies of self-hood and magical consciousness through the ethereal lens of nature. I embed qualities of the feminine, memory and ritual through drawing, installation, and performance in order to mend the logical and mystical bodies, and incite exploration of these forgotten spaces. Through the mergence of these ideals, a resurrection of the contemporary divine-body can be achieved and in turn positively affect our new synthetic landscape.
