bio


Anjelic Owens (b.1994) is a visual artist based in Manhattan, New York. She received her BS in Mathematics at Illinois State University and MFA in Photography at Parsons School of Design. 

She makes work that unpacks systemic injustice and dissects its effect on her intersectional identity. Through her lens as a black women, coming from a low-middle class family, with an interracial identity she questions how the world accepts or erases her and her community at large. It's common for people to move through society just accepting reality. You do yourself a disservice when you stop dreaming and you stop questioning societal systems. With a focus on educational justice, she makes work that makes room for skepticism. Her interdisciplinary approach utilizes, installation, image and sound. When picking found objects and working with materials she wants to activate a new thought pattern of questioning within each installation she creates. Through her work she grapples with the question: how do you reorient yourself in this environment, in such a way that demands humanity for every person?
