Explorer of Meanings via Speculative Fiction

 

Anna Jordan is a Berlin-based artist. She uses the pseudonym Anna Jordan Project for her visual artworks since 2004. In 2015 she took up another artistic name The Allegorist to express her auditive visions. Her multi-perspective art combines different media, genres, and styles formed by thinking in a transdisciplinary way.

 

The love and dedication that Anna Jordan aka The Allegorist places in each project she pursues reflects an artist that thrives on creativity and creation itself, turning thoughts and narratives into a near-palpable reality. As an electronic music producer, singer, visual artist, sound designer, or painter, she gathers in herself an ideal skill set that enables her to visualize a sonic reality, translatable into several artforms that comply with her futuristic, forward-thinking vision under her musical alias, The Allegorist.

 

The Allegorist is an art project, an ideology with a holistic approach and a creator of stories told through electronic music and other media. It stands for an imaginative journey through all ages, for a better future. The project mixes all styles and genres and sets no limitations. Every great idea is welcomed and included in the mindset of a diverse unity.

The Allegorist sings in the fictional and majestic Mondoneoh language, to connect all nations. The name is broken up into three parts. The first is 'MONDO', which is a collection of dialogues between a pupil and a Zen Buddhist teacher, designed to obtain an intuitive truth. The purpose of 'NEO' is to update values for the 21st Century, which transcends the hierarchical, gender-biased, outdated aspects of traditions to one community of equality, diversity and inclusion. The letter 'H' at the end symbolises the bridge between past and future, us and them, and the balance of darkness and light, yin and yang, the micro and macro, nothing and everything.

 

In 2016 her debut album Botanical Utopia was released at the greek label Kraak Records.

 

In 2017 Anna Jordan began working simultaneously on music and video production, which resulted in her second album Hybrid Dimension I. It is a narrative audiovisual album and came out with still images, moving pictures, and a short story in the genre of speculative fiction, where the story also has an underlying philosophical meaning. The album was released in 2018 at Detroit Underground, based in LA.

 

From the Hybrid Dimension I. collection, the music video Humandroid Lovers was screened at the Hong Kong Arthouse Film Festival 2018 and at the Brussels Independent Film Festival 2019. The music video Falling Astronaut was screened at the Berlin Sci-Fi Filmfest 2019.

 

An alumnus of Amplify Berlin, Anna Jordan worked as an artist in residence in 2019 under the mentorship of Robert Lippok in Berlin. In 2020 she worked as an artist at CTM Festival's art residency Musicmakers Hacklab ''Shapeshifters''.

 

In 2021 Jordan launched her own label, Awaken Chronicles.

 

Giving continuity to the galactic journey of the Hybrid Dimensions, she released Hybrid Dimension, pt 2. on her label Awaken Chronicles. The music video „Dark Forces“ was honorable mention at the ARFF Around International Film Festival 2020, finalist and screened at the Film Festivals Nottingham and Liverpool in 2020, was a finalist at Vesuvius, Prague, and Košice Film Festivals, award winner at WUIFF 2020 and officially selected by Lift-Off Sessions and many others.

 

Artist statement

"The Allegorist is happy to inspire the soul warriors. Because there is a better future. This future cannot be reached without a change and this has to begin in our minds. Join the Intergalactic Journey with dreamy visions through time and space. The movement is ours.“
