REFLECTIONS OF OURSELVES

Reflections of Ourselves is a collaborative art project which celebrates the rich diversity of Canadians. Conceived as a genealogical maple tree, the installation explores the question “Who are we?” Dual lenses of cultural heritage and material culture are expressed through textile traditions and contemporary techniques. Leaves created by Indigenous, settler and immigrant Canadians in honour of their cultural heritage hang from the branches. The tree is a metaphor that places humans in the context of the earth’s natural environment. It is a representation of our human community where differences in human culture are like the variations of individual leaves on a tree.
