About

“Reimer captures, collages, and excavates language with an ear for its sometimes hidden, sometimes painfully obvious, political dimensions.”

Nikki Reimer

Nikki Reimer is a carbon-based life form residing on the traditional territories of the Treaty 7 People in southern Alberta. She may or may not be undead.

Primarily known as a poet and non-fiction writer, Reimer also experiments with digital media and collage, and was raised with dance and music training.

Reimer explores found and remixed methods for generating material, including n+1 and blackout methods. Her art practice explores emotion, feminist issues, urban life, loss and grief, politics, and other heavy subjects, though her work is also at times darkly funny and absurd. She is the sister of late Calgary-based musician Chris Reimer, and she carries his spirit with her always.

Member of the Alberta Writers Guild and the League of Canadian Poets.
