About

Métis artist Tracey-Mae Chambers’ project, Hope and Healing Canada, is made up of more than 100 temporary site-responsive art installations across Canada and the United States. Each installation is made using crochet, knit and woven red yarns. This ongoing body of work is used to illustrate connections between settlers and Indigenous, Inuit, and Métis Peoples, while also addressing the decolonization of public spaces. After the exhibit concludes later this year, the work will be returned to the artist and will be repurposed at another facility somewhere in Canada. The stories gathered from each participating site will culminate in a book and traveling exhibition.

About the Artist:

Tracey-Mae Chambers is an artist and a member of the Métis Nation of Ontario. Her family is from, and some still reside, in the traditional Métis community in Sault Ste. Marie and Penetanguishene, Ontario. She is traveling across Canada and the United States creating site-specific art installations at residential school historical sites, cultural centres, museums, art galleries and other public spaces.

The artist's installation is ongoing through September 30.
