Local Métis artist Tracey-Mae Chambers has brought hope and healing to the McMaster Museum of Art with a site-specific art piece installed in the museum’s garden.

The installation is part of Chambers’ #HopeAndHealingCanada project, which contemplates themes of connection, reflection, and healing in the wake of the COVID-19, and the daily news of unrest around the world. In recognizing the need to reconnect, #HopeAndHealingCanada creates space for people to pause and reflect and heal towards a more hopeful and brighter future.

Using vibrant red string, Chambers’ creates detailed installations by weaving and intertwining the string among elements of the environment outside of sites across the country such as museums, parks, and city halls.

It can also represent courage and love.”
