Valerie Salez: Play, Fall, Rest, Dance
As a way to explore pure creativity â€” void of concepts of right or wrong â€” the Victoria-based multi-disciplinary artist Valerie Salez involves participation of children with disabilities in her work. During her exhibition, she invites these kids to freely reimagine her sculptural installation using various provided materials â€” her gentle guidance only encouraging the children to explore their creative processes. Over the course of the month-long show, visitors who drop by the gallery can see an ever-changing work that emphasizes the state of making and being. Oh, and feel free to dig in, yourself.
