Three photographs from Black's REDress project were recently purchased for the RPL Permanent Collection.
REDress has been installed in public spaces throughout Canada and the United States as a visual reminder of the staggering number of women who are no longer with us. Through her work, Black draws attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Indigenous women and to evoke a presence through the marking of absence.
Jaime Black is a Winnipeg-based multidisciplinary artist of mixed Anishinaabe and European descent. Black’s art practice engages in themes of memory, identity, place and resistance and is grounded in an understanding of the body and the land as sources of cultural and spiritual knowledge.
