Open Space presented the London, Ontario-based artist Steve deBruyn for a two-week production residency culminating in a three-week installation entitled Wood for Rolling. deBruyn coordinated with local volunteers to resource recycled building materials in the Victoria region to help construct a gallery installation inspired by the aesthetics of skateboard ramps. deBruyn has been actively exhibiting in Canadian galleries and artist-run centres, exploring the function and techniques of ramp construction, pushing the physical and conceptual boundaries of the form.
