Mysterious pale rectangles appeared on the massive beams, stairs, and floor boards at Open Space, marking the evolving process of Victoria artist Tanya Doody. Her installation Impression Formation featured raw clay imprints of Open Space’s historic (and fatigued) interiors. The resulting tablets, subtle and delicate, exploited clay’s capacity to cast textures, tracks, marks, and inscriptions.
