Inspired by the themes of ancestral and contemporary traditions, the new installation at Brookfield Place by Canadian-born artist Jordan Bennett draws from his Native heritage. The installation takes its name by Mi’kmaq, the word for “night” in his native language, and the materials are a combination of of 3M Diamond Grade reflective on aluminum and printed polysilk fabric. Through this reflection on the changing social dynamics of Native American communities, Bennett has woven a site-specific installation that considers the idea of storytelling as well as connecting a diverse audience of visitors.

Tepkik will be on display from July 9th until September 6th at Brookfield Place.
