Borrowing its name from a poem by Canadian poet Lisa Robertson, each thing ripens its own space was a site responsive installation incorporating studio built artworks into a larger environment created in the gallery space. The installation highlighted how space informs the nature of what an artwork is. Through response and revision, within the physical and psychological space of the gallery, the installation matured to fruition. Working with and against architecture and time, each thing ripens its own space brought the concept of the art making process to the forefront so that the mystery of the human tendency to create could be observed and explored.
