    The film I Can Heal explores the world of Renée Stout by way of Fatima Mayfield, an urban conjure woman created by the artist as an alter-ego and vector. Whether as equal opposites or as corresponding echoes, the relationship between the two is porous and shifting. A number of motifs throughout the film speak to this, most notably the narration, which is conceived as an audio palimpsest of two voices merging and diverging, recalling each other, and “sliding” over the course of a number of incantations, chants, and parables. The passages themselves are taken from the exhibition’s accompanying glossary of conjure terminology, the Bible’s Parable of the Sower, and a lover’s recipe recounted by Zora Neale Hurston in her book Mules and Men


    Funding for this project has been generously provided by Furthermore: a program of the J.M. Kaplan Fund. Additional support was provided by Accola Griefen Gallery in New York City, the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, Hemphill Fine Arts in Washington, D.C., and Zanatta Contemporary Art / Zanatta Editions in Shawnee, Kansas.
