Métis artist to discuss art project and installations within Halton Hills


Published November 24, 2021 at 4:01 pm

A Métis artist was recently in Halton Hills to create art installations as part of her “Hope & Healing” project which she will be discussing with the community at an upcoming artist talk.

This week, Tracey-Mae Chambers was on-site at the Library and Cultural Centre and will be speaking about the project at the virtual event on Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m.

The artist talk will provide the community with an opportunity to hear directly from the artist as well as learn more about the project.

Chambers has been building detailed temporary site-specific art installations across indoor and outdoor spaces across the province.

The installations are built with red string, which represents the colour of blood, passion and anger and is also meant to represent the connection between people and the environment.

According to the event page, the art illustrates “the temporary nature of our lives and promotes discussion about truth and reconciliation and decolonizing public spaces in Canada.”
