Hope and Healing: Art Installation by Tracey-Mae Chambers

February 17 @ 8:00 am - April 10 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Métis artist Tracey-Mae Chambers brings her site-specific art installation #HopeAndHealingCanada to the Huron County Museum on Feb. 17, 2022. Visitors to the Museum will have the opportunity to watch the installation process on the 17th, with the final installation being available to the public until April 10. Please note that the installation will be completed outside the Museum, but installation may be moved indoors in inclement weather, resulting in capacity limits.

#HopeAndHealingCanada is a series of site specific art installations created with red yarn. Chambers uses knit and crochet pieces to illustrate connection between us. The artist also uses the work to promote dialogue about decolonization and reconciliation between Indigenous, Inuit and Métis peoples and settlers.

“ Since late July 2021, I have been building site specific art installations across Ontario. They are constructed with red acrylic yarn which is strong and resilient outdoors. Red is the colour of blood, the colour of passion and of anger. It is the slur against Indigenous and represents danger and power. It can also represent courage and love. These installations are detailed and temporary….There is no waste as the very same string is used in subsequent installations. Although this is painstaking it is worth every ounce of effort….I want to illustrate the temporary nature of our lives, of our struggles and our achievements. The string represents the connectivity between each other and our environment as it will also not last forever.”
