Fabiola Jean-Louis’s most recent series, Rewriting History, is an inquiry into social change, asking how much has society really changed since the beginning of slavery? In this haunting photographic essay, Jean-Louis has created paper sculptures styled to mimic garments worn by female European nobility between the 15th through 19th centuries. The series speaks to the shocking treatment of Blacks throughout history and the trauma inflicted on their bodies as juxtaposed with the abstract idea of Black freedom. Simultaneously, it engages with a vision of the future – one of hope, strength, resilience, and beauty.
