Victoria-based artist Valerie Salez invited children into her studio during an artist residency, Play, Fall, Rest, Dance, at Open Space. One- to two-hour private play sessions allowed children to create their own installations using components of the artist’s previously exhibited sculptures. Children reinvented, re-formed, and re-informed Salez's work. Additionally, the children were invited to interact with their installations through movement, performance, or sound. The bodies of work the children worked with included Salez's Fourth Nature (textile sculpture) and In the shadow of our own dust (charred wood, horse hair, velvet, drawing). Valerie documented the children's process with video as they created and performed with their installations. Open Space Gallery, Victoria, BC 2013
